Digital Humanities Minor feature in the Daily Emerald

DHLogo600x600PX72-300x300Digital Humanities is a new minor offered by UO English, focusing on literary study through digital culture. Read more in the Daily Emerald story, “New Digital Humanities minor could combine literary culture with modern technology.”

English has a new minor in DH!

The transformation of the printed word into digital formats changes how and why we read, what we write, where and how we find books, and how we preserve our cultural heritage. Physical books and manuscripts remain part of our research, but are now complemented by new multimedia publishing platforms and research methodologies popularly identified as, “the Digital Humanities” or DH.  Students who minor in DH will not only consider the relationships between old and new media forms, but will have opportunities to create multimedia projects to help visualize, publish, and analyze the texts we study.

For further details about the DH minor see our webpage.
