ANGIS Tokyo 2021


Theme of ANGIS Tokyo 2021

As for the theme of ANGIS 2021 in Tokyo, we invite you to discuss the “Waters” in Asia. Many of the areas in the region have a topography defined by water systems including seas, rivers, lakes, and marshes. Even the deserts in the dry zone, residents’ accesses to water critically discern their livelihoods. In visualizing and analyzing patterns of movement and transformation in the past, we share the question, how rains, rivers, coasts, and seas have shaped history in Asia.

Other than any topics related to this broad theme, we also welcome submissions on the historical studies of all places and periods in Asia employing GIS technology and, on the theory and the methods of spatial analysis.

Open to the scholars of history, spatial science, geography, and other varied fields of humanities and social sciences, ANGIS Tokyo 2021 aims to provide the ideal platform to present their latest findings and to explore new research agendas.
