Digital Humanities Foundations | ILS 63000

Instructors

  • Matthew Hannah

Description

This course will provide a sweeping introduction to many of the tools and concepts central to the Digital Humanities. DH is a newer area of study, supplementing the study and teaching of the humanities and social sciences with computing tools that provoke new questions. The course is divided into two concurrent tracks: 1) One session per week will be spent discussing readings about the central debates within the field in discussion-based lecture periods and exploring existing DH projects to gain familiarity with contemporary work; 2) Students will also learn to apply software tools to their home disciplines in weekly lab sessions where students will be required to reconceptualize their research into datasets with an eye toward building an original digital project or exhibit. There are no pre-requisites, and graduate students and advanced undergraduates are welcome from any department. While there are no technical skills required, students should know the basics of their chosen computer interface as we will be downloading software and navigating file paths.
