Publication plans

During the course of 2010 we plan to submit a number of journal articles outlining the preliminary findings of the project. These will, in part, derive from the papers and conference presentations available online.

In the longer-term this will be followed up by further papers and a monograph on the changing occupational structure and population geography of nineteenth century Britain and an accompanying historical atlas.

We have begun putting PowerPoint slides of maps produced by the project online with the intention that these could be used by school teachers and university lecturers for teaching purposes. We also hope to produce an interactive GIS atlas for use in schools. The intention is that this could be used for teaching both history and geography but that students would also acquire quantitative analytical and IT skills while using the resource.

The scope for both a paper atlas and for an interactive GIS resource should be evident from the maps available elsewhere on this website.
