Humanities and Geography

The current issue of ArcNews has an article from AAG Executive Director, Doug Richardson, on an initiative to link Humanities and Geography. As you may have noted this is high on the to do list as part of our day job for Sue and I. We are in fact in the early stages (read that as writing grants) of a Virtual Center for Humanities in Geographic Information Science (I hope to get some work on the web site in the near future) with Trevor Harris (WVU), John Corrigan (USF), and David Bodenhammer (Polis Centre) as the primary investigators. There are others connected to the center including a relationship with UVA, who, to pull this back to the original topic, will be hosting the Humanities and Geography conference in the summer of 2007. For those of you who have an interest in Humanities and Geography definitely check out the conference and let us know about your project so that we can link to you.

One Comment to Humanities and Geography

  1. Jesse, have you read the book Collapse by Jared Diamond? If not, I encourage you to do so. It’s very geography-archeology-socially oriented. One of the best scientific book I read 🙂 It may interest you. Cheers!
