Social GIS: History and Migration
The SocialGIS workgroup is connected to the Historical Department and the Institute for Migration Studies and Intercultural Research (IMIS) at Osnabrück University and centers around the Chair for Modern History and Historical Migration Studies.
We explore new ways to visualise and analyse historical processes based on time- and georeferenced mass data, often from biographical datasets and often with regard to mobility and migration.
SocialGIS@uos: Prof. Dr. Christoph Rass, Dr. Marcel Berlinghoff, Dr. Sebastian Huhn, Dr. Frank Wolff, Sebastian Bondzio, Olaf Berg, Lukas Hennies and Malte Schwickert.
SocialGIS is also closely connected to the People on the Move-Consortium (PotM) formed by researchers at the International Tracing Service (ITS) at Bad Arolsen, the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Amsterdam, and the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS) at Osnabrück University.
PotM: Olaf Berg (IMIS), Dr. Henning Borggräfe (ITS), Dr. Christian Groh (ITS), Dr. Sebastian Huhn (IMIS) Prof. Dr. Christoph Rass (IMIS) and Prof. Dr. Ismee Tames (NIOD).
