Mapping in the Humanities (Workshop)

September 14, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Mapping provides a powerful and effective means of discovering, analyzing, and visualizing information across a wide range of disciplines. In the humanities, the use of mapping and geo-temporal visualization has exploded in recent years – a growing trend often characterized as “the spatial turn.” In this workshop, participants will:

  • Define Geographic Information Systems (GIS), including common uses, tools, and data formats
  • Discuss various cases studies demonstrating the use of GIS and mapping for addressing humanities research questions
  • Brainstorm ideas for incorporating mapping techniques into your own humanities projects, and identify possible next steps with the workshop facilitators

This workshop will be facilitated by Leigh Bonds (Digital Humanities Librarian, University Libraries) and Josh Sadvari (GIS Specialist, University Libraries), who will be available afterward for consultations.

Who: OSU faculty, graduate students, and postdocs in the humanities
When: Thursday, September 14, 3:00 – 4:00pm
Where: Research Commons, 3rd floor of 18th Avenue Library
