ENGL 36500 Digital Humanities

GE-Communication Are the practices of traditional humanistic study relevant in an increasingly digital, high-tech world? Yes, they are—especially in the new field of digital humanities. The digital humanities is an area of scholarship that uses new technologies as tools and media for composition, analysis, and humanistic thought, and which studies the relationship between human beings and their changing technologies of communication. This course will provide an overview of the field of digital humanities. You will learn how to use a variety of digital tools and work both individually and on teams to create multimodal compositions and digital-based projects that collect, organize, and analyze information. No previous computer experience required: this course is meant for students of all abilities.
