Historical geography has been culturally inflected as according to James Duncan on which he believes that what was needed were more "modest" theories that reflected "complexity". However, the problem is that the new cultural geography is built upon the politics of representation. Currently, geographers have adopted the "performative" approach which focuses on the present or recent past. The geographers now investigates the practices of historical geography, the practices of geography past, and the practices of the field. Meanwhile, six papers are presented which are from the three sessions at the 2007 meeting of the Association of American Geographers which cover a variety of different time periods and a wide range of different topics.
