What is Digital Humanities and why does this question matter? Through weekly discussions this course explores these questions and the ongoing debates to define this new field. We will consider how DH relates to other disciplines, how humanists utilize digital methods in their research, and how DH is part of global conversations around technology and society. We will learn the foundation of both data analysis and visualization, and how these methods can inform digital humanities research. We will also experience the process of DH, moving from an initial research question to presenting a humanities data analysis project.
