Spatial Humanities 2016

This major European conference is concerned with the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and other spatial technologies in humanities research.  The main aim of the conference is to explore and demonstrate the contributions to knowledge that these technologies enable within and beyond the digital humanities.  We welcome submissions on all aspects of using GIS in humanities research from database development to applied research in which spatial technologies have made a contribution to understanding of the past.  We welcome contributions from all humanities disciplines including (but not limited to) history (including fields from social science history such as historical demography and environmental history), archaeology, literary studies, classics, linguistics and religious studies.  Contributions from PhD students are encouraged.  Non-speaking participants who are keen to learn what is happening in the field are also welcome.
