In this episode, Ruth Mostern reflects on graduate training – including her own and various influences – and her earlier projects related to Song dynasty gazetteers. She then discusses her more recent work on large-scale and long-term spatial histories, including the massive Yellow River project (an environmental history spanning 5,000 years of time) and the recently-funded world-historical “gazetteer” project.
