The International Spatial Humanities Sprint Camp

Thursday, 24 October – Sunday, 27 October 2019

The International Spatial Humanities Sprint Camp

The International Spatial Humanities Sprint Camp (iSHCamp 2019) will take place on 24th - 27th October 2019 in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.  This 3-day event will feature morning workshops and training from experts in the field, followed by an intensive afternoon session where participants can put their newly acquired knowledge into practice, using previously undigitised maps from the TCD Glucksman Library.  At the end of the iSHCamp 3-day event, the participants will have produced an online resource for public use. 

Who is it aimed at? The workshop is aimed at Early Career Researchers who have an interest in Digital and Spatial Humanities and would like to apply techniques from those fields to their own research.

What will participants learn?  Participants will learn skills such applications of GIS, online exhibition techniques and visualisation, as well as more theoretical aspects associated with Spatial Humanities that participants may then apply as an alternative approach to their own data.

iSHCamp2019 Travel Bursary
To support Early Career Researchers who wish to attend the iSHCamp, two Travel Bursaries are up for grabs.  One Travel Bursary will be available for the best poster submission (see ‘Call for Posters’ below), and one Travel Bursary will be available for the best reflective blog based around the themes of the Virtual Reading Groups (see Virtual Reading Group information below).  Each Travel Bursary will cover flights, accommodation, reasonable subsistence and ground transport up to a total of EU450.  The registration fee for iSHCamp will also be waived for Travel Bursary recipients.

Full details of the Travel Bursary scheme for iSHCamp can be found here:…

iSHCamp Call for Posters
As part of this 3-day event, we also want to allow the participants an opportunity to showcase their own work, and how Spatial Humanities relates to their research.  To do this, we are making a call for posters to be presented as part of the programme of the 3-day event.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 5pm (Irish Summer Time) on Monday 29th July 2019.

More information on the call for posters and how to submit an abstract can be found here:… 

iSHCamp2019 is organised in association with the Trinity Centre for Digital Humanities, with funding from the Irish Research Council ‘New Foundations’ grant scheme.
