Fostering Humanistic Tools for Digital Mapping

Deadline February 15, 2019

Application Information

A team of St. Olaf and Carleton faculty warmly invites ACM faculty and staff to participate in a four-day summer workshop titled “Fostering Humanistic Tools for Digital Mapping.” With generous support from the ACM Faculty Career Enhancement (FaCE) program, the workshop will take place Thursday, July 25 through Sunday morning, July 28at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota.

Maps, mapping, and spatial understanding are central to many current projects in the humanities. Too often, however, the tools and approaches that facilitate spatial knowledge are limited to GIS and data analysis - tools and methods most useful to scientists and social scientists. Humanists bring a range of other concerns to spatial data: humanities researchers and teachers need to be able to work smoothly with historical maps from diverse spatial traditions, to work in languages other than English, and to incorporate a range of media, just to name a few issues. Humanists often find existing digital mapping tools inadequate to their disciplinary needs.

Our workshop offers a response to these and other issues. It is intended for faculty and staff in any discipline at ACM schools who have some experience with digital mapping, or who are planning to make greater use of digital mapping in the future. Participants will receive training in existing tools to facilitate humanistic digital mapping work, will hear from expert practitioners, and will generate new resources for use by faculty and staff at their home institutions. The workshop will also inaugurate a network of teachers, researchers, and staff who can rely on each other for support in future digital mapping work.

The workshop will take place July 25-28 at St. Olaf College. Eligible participants will receive a stipend of $480 and most meals will be provided. Please contact Louis Epstein ( with any questions.
