This six-week course provides an overview of what DH is and how it can enhance your research and teaching. Each week we will read several articles or book chapters, explore digital projects, and get our hands dirty as we learn how to use digital tools. Our discussions will interrogate the underlying epistemologies of the practices and theories we’re investigating that week, as well as how those tools and approaches support our scholarship and pedagogy, specifically.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Develop your own definition of DH, especially in a liberal arts context
- Know when to incorporate digital tools and methodologies and determine why
- Critically examine the strengths and weaknesses of existing tools and DH projects
- Identify sources to find and learn new digital tools and skills
