This course examines the way humanities disciplines use digital technologies to forge a new role in the public sphere, exploring how digital and print cultures (re)shape forms of cultural expression and knowledge production. Students will create their own digital projects in this course.
This course is the capstone for the Digital Humanities minor. In it, students will develop an original, term-length digital research project of their own design, bringing together all the skills and knowledge they have developed as they have taken other classes toward the minor. The project might be a digital edition, a storymap, a blog, a digital exhibit, a Twitter bot, a podcast, or something else entirely; whatever form it takes, it will contribute to research in the humanities (disciplines like English, History, Gender Studies, Languages, Philosophy, Classics, etc.) and will represent an act of critical making that combines critical thinking with hands-on digital creation.
