“Space, Place, and the Humanities” is a three-week summer institute hosted by the Humanities Center at Northeastern University in Boston (July 24-August 11, 2017) on the newly emerging, interdisciplinary field of Geohumanities. At the intersection of geography, history, literature, creative arts, and social justice, Geohumanities focuses on the role of space and place in a range of humanities disciplines and the arts.

The aim of this Institute is to help college faculty integrate spatial thinking into their research and teaching in new ways. Prominent scholars from cultural geography, literary studies and the digital humanities will lead the Institute, foregrounding the study of space and place as an interdisciplinary endeavor.
