ADHO Geohumanities SIG conversations workshop

We are glad to announce that the SIG will be carrying out a preconference workshop at DH2019.

Full abstracts of the session can be downloaded here:

In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn about the field of Geohumanities through a guided conversation lead by the ADHO Geohumanities Special Interest Group conveners. The workshop will take place over half day and will showcase the work of known practitioners in the field, portraying the variety of projects, theories and views from the fields in the Humanities that traditionally take advantage of spatial approaches, namely archaeology, history and literature.

The ultimate goal of this workshop is not only to attract interested people in the field, allowing them to learn about its complexities in a friendly and kind environment, but also to reflect on how the field is evolving aiming to identify common ground and future challenges, while inviting involvement in the activities of the SIG.

The program is as follow, and all are welcome. See you there!
