Spatial History Project

The Spatial History Project at Stanford University is one of the sweeping, brilliant, amorphous ideas that so exhilarate and perplex interested bystanders. Projects at the institute encompass a dizzying array of topics, from Chinese Railroad Workers to Nineteenth Century Crowdsourcing to a Spatial History and Geology of Desert Ant Colonies. What holds the reader's interest is the sheer energy and wit of the projects, and their underlying commitment to a Humanities-inspired view of the world. After getting to know the Project through reading About Us and Our Team, readers may like to begin scouting the projects themselves. For instance, the Chinese Railroad Workers project, on which 16 lead researchers, research assistants, lab staff, and lab affiliates worked, links out to the full project page. Here readers will find beautiful photographs, an informative timeline, and even a contact form where site visitors may provide information on descendants of railroad workers or any suggestions for revisions or additions to the site.
