NEARC Fall 2015 has ended

Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

 The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 9) or track (i.e. USGS Hydro). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Harmonizing the NHD and WBD Datasets in Maine), key term (i.e. NHD), or presenter last name (i.e. O’Neil-Dunne). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer.

Re-Mapping King Philip’s War: Native Geographies in Early Colonial New England

Andy Anderson, Amherst College*; Lisa Brooks, Amherst College*

This spring Amherst College offered an experimental tutorial to introduce students to research methods in American Studies and Indigenous Studies, focusing on King Philip’s War in early colonial New England. The students read extensive background material, visited archives, and researched primary sources. A large part of the class was learning to apply GIS to help them discover the importance of spatial relationships in the origin, events, and conclusion of the War. This presentation will summarize the lessons they learned and highlight some of their results. It will also feature maps that center regional Native geographies, which may be especially useful for researchers and educators.
