Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Fall 2020
Introduces the creation and visualization of humanities data and explores a broad spectrum of disciplinary perspectives and methods in Digital Humanities. Participants will gain fluency in computational methods such as text mining, digital curation, data visualization, and spatial analysis, while critiquing and evaluating digital humanities research. Readings and discussions of theory will complement hands-on application of digital research methods and approaches. While the objects of study will primarily come from the humanities, the methods of analysis are widely applicable to the social and natural sciences.
