The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) has approved the formation of the GeoHumanities Special Interest Group (SIG), and our activities are just now under way. The SIG's focus is on spatial, spatial-temporal and "placial" perspectives in the digital humanities. We host a mailing list (subscribe easily here) and tweet and re-tweet items we think will interest to our members, as @GeoHum_SIG.


GeoHumanities SIG Full-day Meeting in Lausanne, 8 July

We will have a day-long meeting on 8 July in Lausanne prior to DH2014 commencing, the exact location to be announced. Two-thirds of the day will be given to presentations and discussion of existing digital gazetteer projects and gazetteer development challenges. The last third will be devoted to discussing future SIG activities and group business matters. Schedule and abstracts. Please join us for any and all!

GeoHumanities Resources

We are planning to help ringlead a GeoDiRT section of the Bamboo DiRT DH resource portal. Expect to see that in early 2014. In the meantime, here are a few lists and clearinghouses of GeoHumanities-related resources we're aware of. Please let us know of others, with a tweet (@GeoHum_SIG) or message on the SIG mailing list.
