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 is the blog on this site and an email list. Please do subscribe here. The group also has a Twitter account, @GeoHum_SIG

At the moment, the SIG is going through a new stage with the leadership of four co-convenors: Carmen Brando, Patricia Murrieta-Flores, Michael Page and Benjamin Vis, and the help of our original founders Kathy Weimer and Karl Grossner. See here the full profiles of the co-convenors.

In the next months we will be going through a series of transformations that include the further development of the website featuring new capabilities to bring you information of interest on the field of Geohumanities, the integration of international efforts and collaboration with other groups and institutions interested in the Spatial Humanities, the re-vamp of the working groups and much more. Watch this space!
