This group has been created to explore the creation of an inclusive open-source historical mapping community, with a focus on Early Modern London, Early Modern England and Wales, Ireland and Scotland, and their relations with the wider world. It is an initiative of the MarineLives project team. The MarineLives project was launched in 2012 to work collaboratively on the transcription, linkage and enrichment of the legal records of the English High Court of Admiralty. We welcome academics and non-academics to contribute to this group, which is hosted on the Humanities Commons platform, and to advance a culture of exchange of data sets, map layers, polygons, georeferenced data and methodologies.

      The Research Data and Digital Scholarship team at University of Pennsylvania Libraries is looking for a mapping geospatial project specialist to work primarily on digital humanities and digital scholarship projects, as well as to work with the existing librarian for mapping and geospatial data to foster a mapping-curious community on campus. Sound interesting? Our ideal candidate will have a Master’s degree in a humanities or social science discipline and experience with web mapping tools and GIS. They might also have an interest in georectifying historical maps or programming languages that support working with geospatial data.

      The RDDS team has a strong commitment to anti-racist practice and pedagogy, to data and algorithmic literacy, and to collaborative and intentional approaches to our work.  If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you!
