The Routledge Companion to Spatial History explores the full range of ways in which GIS can be used to study the past, considering key questions such as what types of new knowledge can be developed solely as a consequence of using GIS and how effective GIS can be for different types of research.

All industrialization is deeply rooted within the specific geographies in which it took place, and echoes of previous industrialization continue to reverberate in these places through to the modern day. This book investigates the overlap of memory and the impacts of industrialization within today’s communities and the senses of place and heritage which grew alongside and in reaction to the growth of mines, mills, and factories.

With more than 1,200 entries, the Encyclopedia of Geography reflects how the growth of geography has propelled a demand for intermediaries between the abstract language of academia and the ordinary language of everyday life. The six volumes of this encyclopedia encapsulate a diverse array of topics to offer a comprehensive and useful summary of the state of the discipline in the early 21st century.

A multifaceted exploration of the First World War and its aftermath in the northern American Heartland, organized in three sections: “Heartland Histories” on experiences of conscription and home front mobilization, “Homefront Propaganda” on cultural networks disseminating national war messages, and “Gender in/and War” on aspects often over-shadowed by male experiences of the war itself. Together, this volume provides rich portraits of the complexities of heartland home front experiences and legacies.

AVISTA Series in the Medieval Technology, Science, and Art. London: Routledge, 2019.
Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the publication of Lynn White Jr.’s, Medieval Technology and Social Change (1962), a slim study which catalyzed the study of technology in the Middle Ages in the English-speaking world, this volume investigates the book itself and its fate, and looks at new research furthering and inspired by White’s work. Three papers deal explicitly with the impact, reception, and longevity of MTSC, while five papers investigate areas where White’s work and approach has had a particular impact, namely, medieval technology studies and medieval rural/ ecological studies.

Studies in History and Philosophy of Science 45.Cham: Springer, 2017.
A collection that explores the interaction between practitioners (those who know by doing) and scholars (those who know by thinking) in the period of the Scientific Revolution. Theory and practice are end points on a continuum, with some participants interested only in the practical, others only in the theoretical, and most in the murky intellectual and material world in between, particularly in the area of mathematics. The growing field of "practical mathematics" in early modern Europe helps develop the debate about the role of mathematical practice in the Scientific Revolution.

Vulcan is an international peer-reviewed journal which explores the history of military invention, innovation, and use. While technologies are both agents and objects in military activity, their histories are also intertwined with social and cultural factors. Vulcan goes beyond simple use narratives and asks how social, cultural, political, technical, and environmental factors affect and are affected by military technological change.

These collected essays examine the continuity of mill technology from the ancient world to the Middle Ages and its transfer between Arabic and European cultures; the legal position of mills and millers; literary and artistic representations of these technologies; their urban, rural, and monastic contexts; and early modern adaptations of the medieval technologies of wind and water.
