New SIG Leadership

Some months ago we shared with you that the GeoHumanities SIG two person leadership team of Karl Grossner and myself would be evolving, and sought interest from members in shaping a new team. I am happy to announce our new GeoHumanities SIG co-conveners. Welcome, Carmen Brando, Patricia Murrieta-Flores, Michael Page and Benjamin Vis!

SIG Member Survey Results

Over the last few months we have solicited member response to a short survey in which we proposed five activities the SIG might consider undertaking, if there were sufficient interest from its members, including willingness to contribute. While most of the roughly two dozen respondents thought all five were good ideas, three activities in particular would garner the most supporting energy: (1) a committee to study and further peer review mechanisms; (2) developing a list of experts; and (3) curating a collection of GeoHumanities-related syllabi.
