Title: Understanding the impact of nonlinear dynamics on the processes of human systems
Lead Author: Owens, J. B.
Abstract: The global economic collapse of the fall of 2008 underlined in a powerful way the degree to which nonlinear dynamics influence processes in human systems. As a way of understanding these influences, this paper proposes Geographically-Integrated History (GIH) as an interdisciplinary research strategy. GIH asserts that (1) the understanding of historical processes requires an integration of the natural, social, and cultural environments on the basis of place, space, and time and (2) accomplishing this integration poses a challenge that can be met with modern computational tools, especially dynamic forms of geographic information systems and social network analysis, and visualization techniques. The paper explains how GIH demands the integration of a broad range of disciplinary approaches and provides opportunities for generating truly new, transformative scientific ideas.
