DHM-510 Introduction to Digital Humanities

This course gives an overview of a field of study, research, teaching, and invention that explores what it means to be a human being in the networked information age. Students will engage in an interdisciplinary investigation of transmedia tools and methodologies for the creation and presentation of information. This course will be divided into two sections. In the first section, students will examine the history and emergence of digital humanities as a subfield co-created by librarians, computer scientists, historians, anthropologists, archaeologists, and scholars in visual art, media studies, literature and rhetoric, and composition. In the second section, students will learn and experiment with concepts and methods afforded by practitioners in digital humanities. In so doing, students will generate a project in which they will interrogate what it means to study the value of human expression in the context of a networked society.
