John Corrigan, "The Spatial Humanities"

In recent years, historians, literary theorists, archaeologists, geographers and others have been exploring space—both physical and metaphorical—and the ways that it shapes, and is shaped by, us. In this podcast, host Richard Schramm talks with John Corrigan about “the spatial humanities,” a turn in academic research that brings together scholars from diverse fields, using new digital tools to better understand how we live in our spaces and how those spaces influence economics, politics, and culture.

John Corrigan is the Lucius Moody Bristol Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies and Professor of History at Florida State University where his research focuses on American religious history, religion and emotion, religious intolerance, and the spatial humanities. He is the author or editor of over twenty books on these topics including, most recently, "The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Emotion," ed. (2008); "Religious Intolerance in America: A Documentary History," with Lynn Neal (2010); and "Emptiness: Feeling Christian in America" (2015). He was a Fellow at the National Humanities Center in 2014–15.
