Giacomo Parrinello


I am an assistant professor of environmental history at the Paris Institute of Political Studies. I wrote a book on earthquakes and (urban) historical change entitled Fault Lines (Berghahn Books 2015). I am now working on a new book-lenght project on water flows and the urban-industrial society in the Po River basin. As part of this project, I am developing a historical GIS of water use in the basin. While I use almost exclusively geospatial tools, I am interested in all aspects of the digital humanities.
