CFP: Mapping Place: GIS and the Spatial Humanities

Call for lightning talks and poster presentations: Mapping Place: GIS and the Spatial Humanities Friday-Saturday, February 25-26, 2011
Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UC Santa Barbara

Mapping Place will examine the intersection between Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the spatial turn in the humanities. Participants have been asked to describe their mapping projects in relation to humanities methodologies, research objects and/or concerns. In particular, the conference will examine the contributions that GIS make to our evolving ideas of place. We welcome proposals for 3-5 minute lightning talks and poster presentations. Please send a 500 word abstract and brief CV to mappingplaceconference@gmail.com by January 14, 2011.
