The Digital and the Humanities

Th 12:00PM - 2:50PM / 828 Information Sciences Build / CRN 23581

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” 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 takes to implement interpretive research in the digital environment. You will leave this class having gained a personally significant understanding of current debates in the field of digitally-oriented humanities research as well as having built a digital project of your own.
