DHUM 491: Georeferencing London Books
A study of the early modern London book trade combined with curriculum from the
Geographical Information Systems in the Digital Humanitiescourse offered by the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI). Readings and assignments engage critically with GIS technology as a research tool in the digital humanities, particularly as an application for analysis for the spatial distribution and interaction of early modern printers, publishers, and booksellers.
