About this Session

Since the 1980s, Humanities researchers have increasingly centered place and space in their scholarship. Within the umbrella of the Digital Humanities, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) provide Humanities researchers with tools and techniques to build digital maps that can contribute to both generating scholarship and disseminating it. Students will have the opportunity to start work on a digital map using Google Maps based on any aspect of their research.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this session, paricipants will identify the opportunities and challenges of digital mapping for Humanities researchers and be able to create a simple digital map on any aspect of their research. 

Who might be interested?

All doctoral researchers working on topics with a connection to place and space. 

Participant Pre-requisites

Students should identify an area of their research that they would like to develop into a digital map. This would typically involve any kind of information or data that could be mapped geographically: e.g. places of origin and destinations of migrant individuals; places of publication or of performance of a certain work or works; musical, theatrical or arts venues within a city, etc. Please feel free to bring any images or texts that you might like to include in the map.
