About the SIG

In August, 2013 the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) approved the formation of the GeoHumanities Special Interest Group, and our activities have been under way since. The group's focus is on spatial, spatial-temporal and placial perspectives in the digital humanities. The successful proposal can be downloaded here.

Our principal means of communication will be the blog on this site and an email list. Please do subscribe here. The group also has a Twitter account, @GeoHum_SIG

Our initial plans for the group web site include member-annotated listings for software tools, projects, and publications of interest. In partnership with the DiRT Directory of digital tools for the humanities (http://dirtdirectory.org), we have begun listing those entries categorized under "mapping." For projects, we have joined with John Levin, who has maintained a list of Humanities GIS projects on his Anterotesis blog. We have not undertaken publications yet. Comments and suggestions for the design of those features, as well as help for maintaining them(!) are most welcome

Of course there are other clearinghouses of information about resources for GeoHumanities scholarship, and we don't wish to duplicate efforts. One early step is to identify all such sites−please let us know of resources you find valuable via the group's mail list.

Stay tuned to this space for further developments! Best wishes from your inaugural co-chairs,

Kathy Weimer (Rice University)
Karl Grossner (Stanford University)
