Spatial Humanities 2016
Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK
15-16th Sept 2016
This major European conference is concerned with the use of Geographical
Information Systems (GIS) and other spatial technologies in humanities
research. The main aim of the conference is to explore and demonstrate
the contributions to knowledge that these technologies enable within and
beyond the digital humanities. We welcome submissions on all aspects of
using GIS in humanities research from database development to applied
research in which spatial technologies have made a contribution to
understanding of the past. We welcome contributions from all humanities
disciplines including (but not limited to) history (including fields
from social science history such as historical demography and
environmental history), archaeology, literary studies, classics,
linguistics and religious studies. Contributions from PhD students are
encouraged. Non-speaking participants who are keen to learn what is
happening in the field are also welcome.
