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

    Nicholas Van Allen; Don Lafreniere (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...

    Analyzing Cultural Markers to Characterize Regional Identity for Rural Planning

    Knaps, Falco; Herrmann, Sylvia (2018)
    Regional identity is the shared sense of regional ‘one-ness’, distinctiveness and difference. However, it is an undervalued factor to promote development in lagging rural areas and little is known about methods to reveal its content.

We argue that the most important cultural markers – understood as rural landscapes and heritage features, perceived as regional identity reference points – can be analyzed ...

    Rural-Urban Blurring and the Subjectivity Within

    Dymitrow, Mirek; Stenseke, Marie (2016)
    Realizing that a changing society is in constant need of redefinition, the rural-urban distinction is especially important to look systematically into. One reason is that although the outdatedness of the rural-urban dichotomy is widely acknowledged, it is still largely sustained, not least in ‘rural’ and ‘urban’ development endeavors, which are often conducted separately. Such practice may seem questionable in the face of the progressive blurring of these concepts, which makes them increasing...

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

    Jørgen Mikkelsen (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...
