The Geohistorical Approach in Environmental and Territorial Studies

  • Silvia Elena Piovan
Part of the Springer Geography book series (SPRINGERGEOGR)


This chapter is dedicated to a review of the history and definition of the main subdisciplines that connect geography and history. In particular, historical geography, geographical history, environmental history, historical ecology, and geoarchaeology are introduced as “bridging disciplines” driven by an underlying geohistorical approach. The terms environment, territory, and landscape, each with its own origins, meanings, and uses, are also reviewed. These three terms represent the general objects of studies in the use of the geohistorical approach, a term defined in the latter part of the second chapter. This definition is enriched by an explanation of the importance of historical analyses in studies involving environment, territory, and landscape. The differences between and the opportunities for synchronic and diachronic analyses are also presented.
