HUM 346 / ENG 256

Introduction to Digital Humanities

Emily McGinn

Back to "Spring 2022" courses

In a data-driven society, we are attuned to see data as objective, as the most representative of truth. Yet, what is behind the data? Together, we’ll look at data collection, cleaning, and visualization. How do we turn complex human productions, like books and art, into data points, and should we do this? We will discuss how data is implemented in real-world scenarios and explore the impacts of data on human lives. How does data create narratives that shape our perception of the world? Using Digital Humanities methods and tools, the class will learn how to create an ethical hypothesis from humanities data.
