HISP 358 - Digital Humanities
This course will introduce students to the methods and tools of Digital Humanities to explore new ways of reading literature, analyzing images, and assessing audio-visual artifacts. This course is devoted to new methods and new objects in cultural and literary studies, specifically those enabled by digital media. The goal of the course is to provide students with a space to use digital tools to create projects (such as story-telling, electronic literature, video, art) and also to develop critical vocabularies for analyzing digital projects. Without sacrificing critical discourse, this projects-based class allows students to see how digital tools may be applied to humanities fields and possibilities for scholarly work, particularly interdisciplinary work. No technological expertise is required, and students will be encouraged to experiment and tinker with a variety of platforms. This course is conducted in English.
