Syslab's "Geospatial Humanities" in Visual Studies Program
The course on "Geospatial Humanities and Mapping technologies" offered by Syslab in 2017-2018 is included into the non-degree certificate program in Visual Theory and Practice (VTP). VTP offers students the core knowledge and the skills to pursue visual research related to their own fields of study. Developed and coordinated by the VTP executive committee, it is a cross-disciplinary program giving MA and PhD students the opportunity to engage with visuality and visual methodologies during their studies. This includes access to courses on the theory and practice of working with visual imagery as well as one-on-one supervision on a thesis that centers on the analysis of visual material or the production of a visual project. Additional activities include seminar courses, public lectures, conferences, workshops and public programs organized by faculty, invited guests and artists in residence. Through such activities, students will become familiar with, and engage in, interdisciplinary dialogues on visual imagery across various fields of study.
