Special Instructions:

This is a HYBRID course that meets with IS 590 DH. Will look at some of the history of digital humanities, examine some case studies of digital tools and methods applied to humanities material in the context of research, and consider the implications of such projects for libraries, both in terms of providing support to their creators and in terms of collecting the results. This course considers fundamental concepts and common technologies to understand how they enable and constrain digital scholarship in the humanities, and to explore the abundant opportunities and challenges that digital projects pose for libraries. Through lectures, discussion, and hands-on use of digital tools and humanities data, students will gain familiarity with the shape and prominent features of the extensive landscape of digital humanities research, along with some of the basic skills required to navigate it.
