The Virtual Center for Spatial Humanities, a multi-disciplinary collaboration among Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Florida State University and West Virginia University, is hosting an advanced institute in spatial narratives and deep maps. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, this two-week intensive institute brings leading scholars from around the world to explore how deep maps can support relevant issues in spatial humanities.
It runs end of June through July, but those not in attendence can follow the discussions via the institute blog.
Welcome to the conference website for GIS & Spatial Thinking in the Undergraduate Curriculum! GIS holds enormous potential for undergraduate education across the curriculum, but harnessing that potential is challenging. This conference will provide an opportunity to share ideas, and explore challenges and emerging opportunities. We expect the conference to be a problem-solving workshop allowing faculty from various disciplines to share tools, methods and resources for integrating GIS and spatial analysis into their work and GIS/IT staff to learn about the discipline-specific spatial needs and goals of faculty.
