As part of UC Irvine’s burgeoning Digital Humanities working group, I’ll have the opportunity to present on GIS (Geographic Information Systems) – what they are, what they do, how they are can be used for digital humanities scholarship, and also a little bit about my own experience using campus resources to learn Esri’s ArcGIS Desktop software. I hope to share the benefits of practicing the technology one researchers, even if that research deals primarily with its socio-political implications.
