ANDREW MELLON MASTERS and DOCTORAL Scholarships Project in Spatial Humanities

Spatial Humanities uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS), geospatial technologies and methods within Humanities to explore new questions about the relationship of space and the built environment to human behaviour, history, culture and identity.

Applications are invited from students with an interest in working in the emergent interdisciplinary field
of Spatial Humanities, within a situated African context. The Project brings together humanistic and geo-science students and scholars and engages in an interdisciplinary approach. The Project capitalizes on a digital present where the critical use of spatial methodologies, is linked to cultural/artistic/architectural/spatial narratives within three sites: uMlazi, Chatsworth and Durban Central.
