  • Rebuilding the Landscape of the Rural Post Office: A Geo-Spatial Analysis of 19th-century Postal Spaces and Networks

    Van Allen, Nicholas; Lafreniere, Don (2016)
    This paper uses Post Office (PO) petitions to uncover the complex spatial relationships that developed through the unique social space of the PO. These petitions were signed by the rural people of Middlesex County, Ontario, and submitted to the Postmaster General in order to request changes in the workings of their postal services. When used in a historical GIS they allow us to recreate and reconstitute postal communities in late-19th-century rural Middlesex. By observing the spatial relation...

    Finding Vanished Routes: Applying a Multi-modelling Approach on Lost Route and Path Networks in the Veluwe Region, the Netherlands

    Vletter, Willem F.; van Lanen, Rowin J. (2018)
    Route networks are influenced by cultural and environmental dynamics. Consequently, route networks themselves often are dynamic as well. This is especially true in lowland areas, such as the Netherlands, where environmental processes (e.g. geomorphological changes, floods) probably reshaped these networks numerous times. Many of the existing route networks in the Netherlands were established relatively recently, and little is known of their historical predecessors. Recent developments in spat...

    The Struggle for Agrarian Resources in Danish Towns since c. 1500

    Mikkelsen, Jørgen (2016)
    The article sums up and synthetizes research concerning the ownership of and access rights to fields and common land belonging to Danish towns from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, but especially during the period c. 1750–1850. The analysis shows many common features, for instance a large-scale ‘reclamation and tilling movement’ in the 16th and 17th centuries, when arable land was often divided into hundreds of small strips, which were apportioned to each of the houses in a particular tow...

    Agrobiodiversity, Rural Transformations and Household Experiences of Globalised Change: A Case Study from Southern Bolivia

    Turner, Katherine; Davidson-Hunt, Iain; Desmarais, Annette (2017)
    This paper examines reconfigurations of household economies and agrobiodiversity through the experiences and responses of rural households to local manifestations of globalisation and environmental change in the Central Valley of Tarija, Bolivia, from the 1950s to the present. Research participant narratives from seven study communities document a widely experienced regional shift from rain-fed agriculture and pastured livestock production for household consumption to market-oriented producti...
