Rethinking Human Nature: GIS and Landscape-seminars

 Rethinking Human Nature

The research initiative Rethinking Human Nature aims to develop humanistic cross-disciplinary research with a focus on GIS and landscape perspectives. We arrange seminars and workshops, which highlight methodological and theoretical issues involved. The seminar is aimed at archaeologists and others who are interested in interdisciplinary science and GIS methodology. We meet at the Lilla or Stora GIS-laboratory Department of Archaeology and Ancient history, Engelska Parken Campus, Thunbergsvägen 3H
