Space, Place, and the Humanities

A three-week institute for college and university teachers on the subject of space, place, and the humanities.

The Humanities Center at Northeastern University proposes a three-week summer institute in summer of 2017 for 25 college teachers focused on the theme of space, place, and the humanities. The goal is to provide a firm basis for further research and teaching in the geohumanities. The institute will be led by prominent scholars of humanistic geography, literary studies, and the digital humanities and will include leading figures from across the humanities with substantive interests in space and place. Participants will study significant texts in study of space and place from the full range of humanities disciplines. The place of Boston will become a laboratory for our explorations. There will be field visits in the Boston area to galleries and archives as well as guided walks. Participants will be given ample opportunity to interact with the faculty and with each other and will leave the institute with both a syllabus and a developed research plan for a paper or grant proposal.
