The Digital and the Humanities

CRN 24156 / Th 12:00PM - 2:50PM / 
This seminar will address the relationships between digital computing and the humanities, as a subject of both historical interest and contemporary practical concern. We will delve into what it means, if anything, to be a “digital humanist” today by engaging in the ongoing theoretical discussions about the digital humanities (allied social sciences, liberal arts, etc…), but also by sitting down and finding out what it means to implement this type of research in the digital environment. You will leave this class having gained a personally significant understanding of current debates in the field as well as having built a digital project that furthers your own research.
