Geography in the United Kingdom and geography in the United States have common roots in nineteenth-century German and French practices. For the first half of the twentieth century they had relatively separate trajectories with few inter-personal contacts linking them. From the 1950s on, contacts developed rapidly, through both greater trans-Atlantic movement by geographers and shared journals. Nevertheless, after some convergence in the period from the 1960s to the 1980s, the two have diverged again somewhat because of the different contexts within which they operate.
