The Spatial Humanities Initiative

With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Spatial Humanities Initiative awarded, over a period of three and half years, research projects in the Humanities that integrate constructs of time, place, and landscape into the micro-stories of everyday life and the macro-studies of our global condition. Diverse as they may be, these projects not only stem from a surge of scholarly interest in space but also exploit a vast assortment of information technologies; explore, critique, and experience the modeling and mapping of historic sites and events; and together incubate a multi-disciplinary and broadly humanistic collaboration among interested tech innovators, faculty, and students.
