STUDIES IN HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHY AND CULTURAL HERITAGENew thoughts and ideas are transforming Historical Geography (including Archaeology, Environmental Studies, Paleobotany, and Paleozoology) as are Digital Humanities and a range of new methodologies (GIS; HGIS). New methods and theories are increasingly being applied to the Historical Geography of Byzantium and adjacent areas (i.e. South-East Europe and Eastern Europe).
This new international peer-reviewed publication series aims to present original research in the fields of Historical Geography, Byzantine Studies, Medieval Studies, Archaeology, Geography, Cartography, GIS / HGIS and Cultural Heritage. We invite manuscripts (monographs and conference proceedings) from a broad range of all these scholarly fields, with a focus on the regions of the former Byzantine Empire, especially South-East Europe and Eastern Europe, and we particularly welcome interdisciplinary approaches.
The Scientific Advisory Board appointed every five years as well as the publication procedures ensure the series maintains a high standard of scholarship.
Research on the Historical Geography of the Byzantine Empire has always been integral to Byzantine Studies. With the foundation of the project Tabula Imperii Byzantini (TIB) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences by Professor Dr Herbert Hunger (1914-2000) in 1966 and the subsequent developments shaped by Professor Dr Johannes Koder, Vienna has evolved into a renowned centre in this field of study. Since 2006 the Executive Editor of the publication series, Mihailo Popović, has been working as a scholar and project-leader for the TIB.
