Special Event: Stanford University's Zephyr Frank reveals what it takes to create a social/spacial history of nineteenth-century Rio de Janeiro - 6pm, 27 March 2014

Stanford University Spacial History Project
Digital Antipodes!

If you’re interested in the ways in which computers and data can bring a nineteenth-century city to life, you won’t want to miss Zephyr Frank’s upcoming Fred Alexander Lecture:

From Information to Argumentation: Rio de Janeiro, GIS and the Digital Humanities
Date: 27 March 2014
Time: 6pm
Venue: Gentilli Lecture Theatre, First Floor, Geography Building UWA

The Fred Alexander Fellowship is awarded by the History Discipline Group for the purpose of bringing a distinguished scholar in the field of modern history to UWA. Zephyr Frank was nominated by Ethan Blue and I think the selection of a digital humanist for the fellowship is indicative of the exciting possibilities offered by spatial, textual and visual analysis within the humanities at UWA.

Read more about the Stanford University Spacial History project:
'Our projects operate outside of normal historical practice in five ways: they are collaborative, use visualization, depend on the use of computers, are open-ended, and have a conceptual focus on space.'

Explore Zephyr Frank’s research project, Terrain of History:
'We are creating a geographically precise digitized map of 1866 Rio de Janeiro with historically accurate delineations of streets and property—which include over 15,000 parcels in the central parishes. More than 300,000 historic records including names, addresses, and other detailed information covering the period 1840-1890 are also being organized in a database to reveal interconnections, networks, movement, and change over time.'
