We are delighted to announce that the third in the series of Spatial Humanities conferences will be held in Lisbon, 24-25th September 2020. Spatial Humanities 2020 is concerned with exploring what geospatial technologies such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS) have to contribute to humanities research. The main aim is to explore and demonstrate the contributions to knowledge enabled by these technologies, approaches and methods within and beyond the digital humanities. We welcome submissions on all aspects of using geospatial technologies in humanities research, including database development, methodological innovation and applied research that develops our understanding of the geographies 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, art history, anthropology and religious studies, as well as from technical fields including GISc, digital humanities, computational linguistics and computer science. Contributions from PhD students are encouraged and bursaries are available (see below). Non-speaking participants are also welcome.Information source:https://networks.h-net.org/node/73374/announcements/5527619/cfp-spatial-humanities-2020
