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.
