Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 11:15am - 11:30am
Historical geography is the study of past places, landscape change over time, and the spatial patterns and processes embedded in historical conditions and events. Focusing their analytical efforts on the geographies of the Holocaust, students in Professor Anne Knowlesâ€™ senior seminar will discuss their investigations of the spaces and spatial patterns of Nazi perpetrated genocide. This session will present methodological prototypes that explore data derived from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museumâ€™s Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos project and themes emerging from the ongoing work of the international, interdisciplinary Holocaust Geographies Collaborative project. Visualizing the past using innovative spatial analysis and GIS, students will explain how mappings of SS concentration camps, Jewish ghettos, and NaziÂ decision-making reveal the spatial characteristics of the Holocaust.
