Colin Rose, Northrop Frye Centre Fellow

Geographies of Violence: Mapping homicide trends across time and space, Bologna 1600-1700

Colin Rose works on the social history of violence in early modern Italy. He employs cutting-edge digital mapping software to map out and analyze geospatial homicide patterns over 100 years in both town and country. Using the example of homicides in Bologna, Italy in the seventeenth century, Rose shows how Historical Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can improve our understanding of social history by analyzing documentary evidence through geospatial and temporal cartography.
