Zeller goes back to the future

Associate Professor and Chair of Religion Ben Zeller spent a week in June attending the Summer Institute on Objects, Places, and the Digital Humanities at the National Humanities Center.

Zeller was accepted into this highly selective workshop based on his project, “Chicago’s Transforming Sacred Spaces,” which examines how religion in Chicago has been reshaped by waves of immigration, urban development, and suburbanization.

The two-year Summer Institute provides hands-on training with tools for geospatial mapping, 3D modeling, photogrammetry, and data collection and visualization. 

The Institute was funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This was the second of two two-year institutes in the digital humanities funded by the Mellon Foundation. More information is available at http://nationalhumanitiescenter.org/digital-humanities/.
