Digital technology increasingly shapes how we communicate; how we form, maintain, and end relationships; how we construct communities; how we store, retrieve, and analyze information; how we organize our time…the list can go on and on. For students in the humanities, these revolutionary changes have made new kinds of study possible by opening up myriad new avenues for creativity, scholarship, and global engagement. This class is an opportunity for students to learn and play in these new spaces between traditional humanities inquiry and the digital.
These courses are opportunities for students to apply computer-based problem-solving to humanities-based research problems and questions and/or share humanities knowledge in digital forms. Students will make and do digitally-based humanities research projects. These cross-listed classes from departments across the Humanities division will combine high levels of engagement with digital tools and established humanities-based learning modes within a specific disciplinary context.
This course serves as the capstone experience for DH students. It will provide students with a significant design and research experience culminating with a significant, team-based, multinodal, digital humanities project. The public presentation of their work will also be an important element of the course. DH 400 is required for all Digital Humanities majors.
