Introduction to Digital Humanities

Sierra C. Eckert

Back to "Fall 2022" courses

This seminar introduces the digital humanities by exploring key debates around the meaning of humanities data. Like “slow food”–a movement where diners, farmers, and chefs rethink what and how we produce and consume–we will explore data as local, embedded, and requiring careful critical reflection. How can computational tools help us to understand art and literature? What do digital archives reveal (or obscure) about the people who make them? We will explore the foundations of this field while also discussing concerns that emerge when accessing and maintaining digital projects in time and across global and local contexts.
