This session will be the first of two on the theme of Holocaust and genocide geographies. (See Holocaust and Genocide Geographies: Experience.) Its five papers will examine a range of basic and advanced methods for systematically collecting and analyzing geographical data related to major episodes of genocide in world history. The papers will also demonstrate the great range of sources researchers are drawing on to understand these complex events, from authoritative compendia of events and online gazetteers to historical archives, oral histories, and satellite imagery. Together, our methodological papers provide best practices for historical projects anchored in GIS but seeking to integrate complex qualitative data.
