Space and Place in Africana/Black Studies: An Institute on Spatial Humanities, Theories, Methods and Practice

A three-week summer institute and a follow-up workshop for 20 participants to explore spatial approaches to Africana Studies.  The institute would be hosted by Purdue University and the follow-up workshop would be held at Hamilton College.

Hosted by the African American Studies & Research Center (AARC) at Purdue University, this two-year long institute beginning the summer of 2016 is designed to advance knowledge in Africana/Black Studies by affording 20 early and mid-career Africana/Black Studies scholars, graduate students and librarians an opportunity to think critically about the relationship and intersections between Africana Studies and the spatial humanities. To that end, the Institute is concerned with helping participants to think spatially, to internalize the concept of space, and to develop spatial literacies. The Institute will also advance digital and spatial humanities approaches among Africana/Black Studies scholars. Participants will explore key topics in spatial humanities and will be introduced to a breadth of geospatial technologies. The web-based platform, BlackDH.org (www.blackdh.org) will serve as a clearinghouse and portal for scholarly discussions that will grow out of the Institute.
