En este encuentro pretendemos recibir y divulgar los trabajos más recienteds sobre historia y patrimonio de los caminos de hierro en diferentes contextos políticos, geográficos y cronológicos. Desde el siglo XIX los ferrocarriles desempeñan un papel central en el desarrollo y cremimiento econonómicos, en la construcción de naciones y Estados y en el progreso tecnológico. Como consecuencia, no o es sorprendente que, a lo largo de varias décadas, los ferrocarriles hayas sido objeto del estudio de historiadores de diferentes áreas, desde entusiastas, a historiadores económicos, políticos, sociales, de la empresa, de la cultura o de la tecnología. Recientemente, en este campo historiográfico se han producido avances al ligar la historia ferroviaria con tópicos convencionales como la diplomacia, el colonialismo y el imperialismo, la globalización, las transferencias tecnológicas, o áreas de conocimiento como el urbanismo, la geografía y la demografía histórica, el patrimonio y las representaciones culturales, etc., en diversos contextros geográficos y cronológicos.
