New Experiments in the Digital Geohumanities presented by Sarah Luria at Brown University

Friday, November 4, 2011 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

If anyone is in the Providence, RI area on Friday, November 4th, please feel free to check out an engaging presentation on Digital Geohumanities at Brown University.

Sarah Luria from Holy Cross presents, "Land Lines: Where Property Meets Poetry, New Experiments in the Digital Geohumanities." Luria explains the topic: "The sciences, social sciences, and now the humanities all use GIS but we rarely plot our data on the same map. In this talk I explore digital technology as a stage where these branches of knowledge can productively converge. My subject is the making of property through land surveying."
