Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this paper, A. analyses the development of historical geography in Hungary over the last hundred years with special attention to the role of Tibor Mendöl, a distinguished human geographer of the country in the 20th century. In general, Hungarian historical geography has always been closely linked to the ruling paradigm of geography, and followed the main trends of the discipline. The interwar period was the heyday of human geography in Hungary, Tibor Mendöl and other leading representatives of the discipline determined the role and position of historical geography within this context. Although his main field of interest was not historical geography (but settlement geography), nevertheless his essays had a strong impact on the development of this discipline, both with regard theory and methods. After World War II historical geography became politically and scientifically rather isolated, and its revival started gradually only from the 1970s onwards. - (JS)
