Fall 2018 Course - Introduction to Digital Humanities


September 12 1:30 – January 26 2:50 pm

Introduction to Digital Humanities - HUM 346 / AMS 348 / LAS 385 / COM 336

T/Th: 1:30 - 2:50 PM

This course will introduce students to debates and approaches in the Digital Humanities from a global perspective. We will consider the foundations of DH while also discussing concerns involving access, maintenance, and care for projects over time in regions with physical restraints such as connectivity restrictions. On seminar days, we will work through theoretical concerns and explore the possibilities and limits of existing tools. On studio days, we work in small teams to gather data from primary sources in RBSC, which we will then use with software and platforms to build skills in computational analysis, data collection, and DH research.
