Trends in recent research are marked by interdisciplinarity and growing cooperation between humanities, social and natural sciences. The Historical Geography Research Centre, founded in 2012, represents these trends. It strives to further deepen cooperation in the field of historical geography between different institutions and disciplines in relation to basic and applied research as well as to education. In particular, it establishes a joint institutional platform for historical geography research and education and it brings together team members from the Institute of History, Czech Academy of Sciences and the Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science.
The centre is output of the project P410/12/G113, ‘Historical Geography Research Centre’ supported by the Czech Science Foundation (GA CR).
