Spatial analysis has yielded new ways to engage with historical information and revealed previously hidden patterns, trends and understandings. From small-scale network representations and large scale mapping projects to a wealth of important articles and monographs, considerable new insight has been gained into processes of movement, spatial representation, migration, experience, and the dynamics of the early modern period.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual presentation submissions and complete panels for its 2017 annual conference. In this year, celebrating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's "Ninety-Five Theses," the SCSC will meet in Milwaukee, a city with a proud German and Lutheran heritage. As always, we will accept papers on any topic within the "long sixteenth century," not just those on Germany, or Lutheran subjects.
The 2017 edition of SEWING A SMALL TOWN will focus on the socio-economic and architectural regeneration of two historical settlements on the hills near the city of Turin. The hilltowns of Bussolino and Bardassano represent two examples of a specific cultural way to build on and with territory. This region is also included in the UNESCO-MaB hill named “Collina Po Man and Biosphere Reserve”.
