Please join us for a discussion with John Corrigan, Professor of History and Religion at Florida State University, who will talk on “‘Spatial Humanities’: Deep Maps and Spatial Narratives,” the title of his forthcoming book, and a sequel to The Spatial Humanities: GIS and the Future of the Humanities, which he co-edited in 2010. While the term “spatial humanities” has no clear origin, Corrigan — along with his collaborators David Bodenhamer (IUPUI Polis Center) and Trevor Harris (WVU) — have helped it to find a home in the academic glossary. Since 2010, numerous proposals to the NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant have incorporated the “spatial” as their premise, practice, or goal.
Participants are invited to read the following ahead of time:
- David Bodenhamer’s “The Potential of Spatial Humanities” [PDF] — Chapter 2 in The Spatial Humanities
- Jo Guldi’s “What is the Spatial Turn?” — UVA Scholars’ Lab Blog
- The Polis Center Spatial Humanities Initiative
- Bodenhamer, Corrigan and Harris’ Deep Mapping and the Spatial Humanities
and to browse the following projects and applications:
