The Spatial History Project at Stanford University, a part of the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), is made possible by the generous funding of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE), DoResearch, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and The Wallenberg Foundation Media Places Initiative.
The Spatial History Project at Stanford University is a place for a collaborative community of students, staff, and scholars to engage in creative spatial, textual and visual analysis to further research in the humanities.
We are part of the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA) along with Humanities+Design and the Literary Lab on the top floor of Wallenberg Hall.
We continually seek fruitful collaborations with faculty at Stanford and beyond, and hire motivated students year round. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Matt Bryant.
