Qualitative Space in the Digital Humanities
April 24th 2019 at University of Leeds

This is a workshop from the AHRC-funded Research Network
Space and Narrative in the Digital Humanities.

Qualitative Spatial Representation (QSR) from Artificial Intelligence
gives us ways to compute and think about spatial relationships such as
bordering, crossing, near to, to the left of, alongside, part of, etc,
without saying where things are located. This suggests potential for the
arts, humanities, and social sciences where data may include qualitative 
spatial descriptions but where these cannot be plotted as points on a 
map or represented by other conventional computational means.

The AHRC-funded Research Network "Space and Narrative in the Digital
Humanities" has (since January 2018) been exploring this potential in
case studies relating to:

oral testimony in Holocaust studies;
cultural landscape in the Lake District;
shape and layout in printed poetry.

The workshop on 24 April at University of Leeds will report on these
explorations and provide opportunities for discussion about different ways
in which space can be thought of and handled digitally.
