Please join us on Thursday, April 23 for “Mapping Matters: Space and Place in the Humanities,” a one-day symposium on the intersection of mapping, digital humanities, and pedagogy. The day’s events will explore the “spatial turn” characteristic of much contemporary humanities research drawn from literary studies, history, art history, philosophy, geography and urbanism, among other disciplines, that inform inquiry in the humanities broadly.

Our guest speaker will be Janelle Jenstad, associate professor of English at the University of Victoria and the general editor and coordinator of The Map of Early Modern London (, speaking on “Wayfinding in Shakespeare’s London: MoEML’s Literary GIS and Interactive Map.”

The day’s activities include:
Workshop & lunch on Mapping in the Humanities Classroom
Reception with guest speaker Janelle Jenstad
Public talk by Jenstad on “Wayfinding in Shakespeare’s London: MoEML’s Literary GIS and Interactive Map”
