DH 101 - You Say You Want a Revolution: An Introduction to Digital Humanities


FDR: HU
Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring, 2014

This project-based course introduces non-STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) majors to the use of digital technologies in humanities research and research presentation. The course is predicated on the fact that the digital turn the world has taken in the last several decades has drastically changed the nature of knowledge production and distribution. To call this turn a revolution is not an exaggeration. The class involves “talking” and “doing;” that is, we integrate lectures on digital humanities (DH) and computer science with demonstrations of fully developed DH projects by guest speakers culminating in thrice-weekly lab sessions. At the beginning of the term, the lab sessions give students hands-on experience with new tools and techniques but later evolve into inquiry-based, student-designed group projects in DH.
