HUM 346

Introduction to Digital Humanities

Back to "Spring 2018" courses

This class will explore the public digital humanities. How can the humanities draw on data visualization, mapping and other digital tools? How can those kinds of tools help us to communicate complex ideas to public audiences? How might we engage questions of social justice by balancing the neat precision of digital tools with the messiness of our cultures, histories and identities? Final projects will pair collaborative teams with real-world datasets. Datasets may range in subject from social media during recent protests to debates about how to store, organize, and access our cultural heritages through archives and other public memory sites.
