Fall 2015, DH 190-01: DH Studio: Digital History (1). This lab course is designed to introduce humanities students to the practice of digital history as a research environment that fosters historical thinking and explores the impact of the digital as a medium for thinking about history. What is happening as scholarship shifts from print books to digital formats that allow for different ways of understanding the past? Through hands-on practice, students learn about the digital tools for analyzing primary sources with new methodologies. Students participate in creating a digital project that utilizes multiple techniques such as spatial history, network analysis, or text mining. Prior experience with these digital methods is not required. Barry. Fall 2015 Planned Offering: Fall, Winter, Spring, when interest is expressed and departmental resources permit.
