The 35th annual Margaret and Harry Hausser lecture will be held at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture.

2012 Malone Conference: Mapping History: Interdisciplinary Research
October 3rd-7th at the 320 Ranch near Yellowstone National Park
The Department of History and Philosophy's Tenth Michael P. Malone Memorial Conference will be dedicated to the role of maps in historical research. What can maps tell us about the beliefs, values, and worldviews of past societies? Thanks to the recent spatial turn in the humanities and social sciences, historians of geographica areas ranging from Africa to the American West are now taking a fresh look at maps as potential goldmines of evidence from the past. Recent research suggests tha tsome of the best methods available for analyzing historical maps and conceptions of space can be found in other disciplines, notably computer science (GIS) and geography. Scholars interested in historical mapping are thus beggning to demonstrate how the craf of the historican can merge in exciting new ways with the spatial, quantitative, visual and technological methods found in a variety of disciplines.
The Tenth Malone Conference, organized by Professors Billy Smith and Catherine Dunlop, will be held from October 3-7, 2012, at the 320 Ranch near Yellowstone National Park. Conference participatns will include prominent scholars from a range of disciplines and countires. Graduate students from the history program will play an active role in conference discussions. We are looking forward to seeing you at the confernece. For more information, email Professor Billy Smith, email@example.com.
