Dear GeoHumanities members:

The week of DH2014 has now come to a close, however the energy remains!  The SIG meeting on Tuesday was a resounding success.  The gazetteer presentations were very well received and fostered discussions opening doors for future collaborations.  Many ideas relating to education, tools, the DiRT project and networking emerged from the business meeting.  In the coming weeks, we will be following up by distributing to you all the notes and slides from both the presentations and business meeting.

Beyond the SIG day-long meeting, a number of papers and posters on geohumanities related themes were found throughout the program, and listed in this spreadsheet:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1P410WKmpuqWvU3lVBEAO_u8K3l8bcmoVtwNYBblOkLw/edit?usp=sharing  Twitter was abuzz during these presentations, many were using the hashtag #dh2014Geo.  If you are not on twitter, you can see these comments and pictures on the twitter feed on the SIG homepage.

We invite members who attended DH2014 to share their thoughts, notes, or observations via this mailing list, and/or the geohumanities web site, in the form of a blog posting or announcement.

Stay tuned for more DH2014 follow up and GeoHumanities SIG emerging initiatives!

And, welcome to our new members!
