Apologies for the extremely last-minute post, which I’m writing on the plane en route to THATCamp!
In a nutshell, what I’d like to discuss in this session is the mapping of literature. By this I mean not only strictly geographical mappings (i.e. cartographical/GIS representations of space and place) but also perhaps more abstract and conceptual mappings that don’t lend themselves so well to mathematical geospatial mash-ups.
How can we (and do we already) play with the possibilities of existing technology to create great DH tools to read literature spatially?
I’ll first demo my Litmap project and hopefully that’ll serve as a springboard for discussion. You can read more about Litmap and look at it ahead of time here.
Very much looking forward to a discussion with all of the great people who are going to be there!
