P19 Geography, empires, nations and the role of geographical societies

We invite papers from researchers interested in how geographical societies in the past have offered not only their services and expertise, but also their maps and databases in order to further the national and imperial goals of different European states. Of particular interest are papers that explore the various ways in which geographical societies and their members were involved in war efforts, peace preparations, and the production of nationalist and imperialist propaganda.
