Wednesday, November 12, 2014 — 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM EST

The 2014-15 History Speaker Series continues with this special presentation jointly hosted with the Geospatial Centre at Dana Porter Library.

Come join us at the FlexLab for "Mapping London's Global Hinterlands: Spatial Text Mining Eight Million Pages of Nineteenth Century Texts", presented by the University of Saskatchewan's Professor Jim Clifford.

Find out how Dr. Jim Clifford is using digital techniques, including text mining, relational databases, geographic information systems mapping (GIS) and information visualization to explore the spread of commodity frontiers, the expansion of global trade and the resulting environmental consequences through the study of nineteenth-century London's global supply chains. 

This special edition of the History Speaker Series will include a tour of the Geospatial Centre's resources available to historians, led by the Geospatial Data Services Librarian, Eva Dodsworth, and the History Librarian, Jane Forgay.
