Just noticed that 'MapHist' might still be 'active', so fwd this posting
to the near-extinct discussion list (cannot discover how to copy and
paste into the new 'MapHist Forum'; so, if such copying and pasting is
feasible, directions would be welcomed to an IT ignoramus . . .). The
final programme has since been posted, should anyone wish to pursue this
['LOCATING THE PAST conference: who is speaking' on 'Lis-maps'

Subject: Locating the Past: Gerald Aylmer Seminar 2012

The next annual seminar commemorating the historian, Gerald Aylmer,
focuses on the theme  'Locating the Past'.  

The seminar will explore the changing interface between history and
geography, asking scholars from a range of related disciplines and
sub-disciplines to identify how their field of expertise is being
transformed by new approaches and technologies. The seminar is jointly
sponsored by the Royal Historical Society, the Institute of Historical
Research and The National Archives. It will take place on Wednesday 29
February starting at 9:30am in the Chancellors Hall, Institute of
Historical Research, Senate House, London 

The programme has three panel sessions with short presentations and open
discussion. The first session will review some of the sources available
when considering using geographic information systems; speakers on the
second panel will consider relevant research questions and applications
used, and the third session will look at working with commercial
partners to develop and/or use new technologies to create information
about places and to consider questions of public management and impact.

The programme ends with a keynote speech by Professor Tim Hitchcock.
