Skills Development & Training

A lack of awareness about GIS, and other geospatial tools, within the Humanities represents a major obstacle to the development of the Spatial Humanities.

We set out to help resolve this in a number of ways: firstly, by holding a range of short-courses (from one-day seminars to week-long summer schools) that will teach the necessary skills to academics and PhD students from across the humanities; secondly, by hosting a major conference on GIS in the humanities; thirdly, by running three expert meetings to facilitate discussion between Humanities scholars and geospatial technologists.

Although the project has now finished, this work continues – see our Digital Humanities Hub for more details.
