“Exploring the Geographic Information of Literature and Art History”
Paris, France 4-8 June 2018
Ecole normale supérieure / NYU Paris
The workshop aims to provide students and researchers with access to digital, spatial frames of analysis in literary and art history where the fluidity of borders, mobility of objects, sociology of agents and different forms of geographic specificity are central research questions. The workshop will offer digital humanities training in modeling and visualization of spatial research problems using free, open-source tools. Activities will include introductory workshops on resources for the spatial humanities, modeling geodata and geodatabases, named entity recognition, geocoding and visualization of spatial data. Participants will work with modeling raw data in hands on sessions.
The workshop will take place in both English and French. Some command of academic French is a must.
The event is funded by the New York University Paris Sciences Lettres Global Alliance.
