Since its emergence as a defined academic field in the early twentieth century, historical geography has been characterized by sustained investments in the interface between human geography and history. Whereas the former has exercised greater long-term control, history was critically significant during the nurturing phase, and remains influential. Reformulations have produced subtle alterations, principally in concert with the dynamics of academic research and teaching in various international, national, and regional contexts. The present discussion is limited to a survey of broadly indicative Anglophone materials drawn from those contexts and avoids repetition of many references listed in related articles. The Baker and Butlin texts reference a much wider literature, including contributions from the non-English speaking world.
