With the Dean of Humanities we are pleased to invite interested Columbia University faculty and doctoral candidates to participate in Mapping for the Urban Humanities: A Summer Institute

Mapping for the Urban Humanities is a two-week skills-building workshop in critical cartography, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. It is designed to expand the disciplinary locations within which spatial knowledge in the urban humanities is produced and interpreted. Workshop participants will learn key skills in mapping, data collection, and data visualization that they can incorporate into their research and teaching. Space is limited. Interested faculty and doctoral candidates are encouraged to apply by January 31, 2018

The Summer 2018 session will be held from 1:00-5:30pm, May 21-June 1, 2018 with an optional third week practicum from June 4-8. No class will be held on Memorial Day, May 28.
