The Spatial Turn: A Multi-Disciplinary Perspective

Busch Hall, Room 100, 5:00pm-7:00pm



The plenary panel will explore questions, evidence, and methodologies – including the opportunities and challenges posed by new approaches in the digital humanities – scholars bring to the study of space and place.  Our participants will broadly engage with the kinds of questions scholars who study space are facing: How are places made? What role has technology played in changing the perception of space and time? How are boundaries established? The panel is also intended to showcase the methodological approaches and sources used by scholars in three different disciplines, Geography, History and Anthropology.

This Graduate Professionalization Project sponsored by the American Culture Studies Program and the Department of History, as part of the 2-day Graduate History Association Conference: “The Spatial Turn.”
