Spatial Narratives and Deep Maps: Explorations in Advanced Geo-spatial Technologies and the Spatial Humanities

A two-week institute and follow-up activities for humanities scholars to consider the potential for incorporating geospatial theories, methodologies and technologies into humanities research and teaching, with a particular focus on the history of religion in the United States.

The Institute proposes to link and deepen scholarly understanding of complex humanities data and geospatial technologies through a focus on two innovative forms-spatial narratives and deep maps-that bend spatial and other digital technologies to the intellectual traditions of humanists, thereby constituting a bridge between diverse avenues of investigation. In doing so, we address the first and fourth goals of the NEH call for proposals, namely, to bring together humanists and technologists to advance an innovative approach to the digital humanities and to assess the tools and methods available to support it.
