Críticas:

"An exciting and useful collection that offers great potential to shape the humanities. In many important ways the volume succeeds in showing how spatial analysis might be essential for humanities scholarship and more specifically what some of the possibilities might be." -Will Thomas, University of Nebraska "Space-whether it be the space of the choreographer's dance floor, the artist's canvas, or the religious shrine-has always been important to humanist scholarship. But in recent years a virtual explosion of new data, tools, and concepts has revolutionized our ability to examine the relationships, patterns, and contexts that emerge when the human world is examined through a spatial lens. This book brings these ideas into focus for the first time, presenting a cornucopia of ideas, examples, methods, and suggestions for further reading that will be invaluable to anyone seeking to adopt a spatial approach to humanist scholarship, or to understand why it has attracted so much recent attention." -Michael F. Goodchild, University of California, Santa Barbara "The first attempt to tackle the issue of the humanities as an epistemic unit head-on, and to consider what the use of GIS... can bring to them... The technical quality of the chapters is uniformly high: side-by-side they form a wide-ranging account, admirable in its ambition and scope, and authored by contributors who are recognized experts in their fields. The documentation and footnoting are exemplary, and the reader new to the field will find the further reading sections at the end extremely valuable." -Literary and Linguistic Computing " -
