The Humanities Computing Curriculum Committee (HC3), launched in AY 2019–2020, brings together humanists, technologists, and administrators across Princeton to promote the integration of scholarly approaches from the humanities and computer sciences in undergraduate curriculum. Emerging methods in data science promise new insights into human history and culture, and the humanities are vital to developing and applying ethical and equitable technology in the world today. The tools, methods, and practices that we apply to humanities data of the past are just as relevant to our present moment.
More specifically, members of the HC3 work collaboratively to:
- Uncover pathways through existing curricula at Princeton that will help COS concentrators and other BSE students receive the cultural, historical, and ethical fluencies they will need in their careers.
- Advise humanities concentrators on how to attain the digital literacies and technical competencies necessary to understand and thrive in a rapidly changing world.
- Develop and support workshops, labs, speaker series, and community partnerships that work toward digital equity.
- Design new undergraduate interdisciplinary course modules based on the integration of humanities and computer science methods.
- Work to make humanities data sets more accessible across campus and especially to COS and SML researchers.
