The Institute of Transnational and Spatial history has a reading group which meets occasionally during the year to discuss both classic and new works in our field.
First meeting: We are going to discuss the Conquest of Nature: Water, Landscape and the Making of Modern Germany by David Blackbourn. Konrad Lawson will offer an overview.

2014-2015 Theme: Spatial History
The theme for our reading group this year will be “spatial history” and we will be looking at a number of texts from history and other disciplines that have helped shape emerging approaches in this area. Each meeting will open with a presentation on a text with a summary of the main arguments, additional comments and discussion questions raised by a second participant, followed by a discussion with all participants.
