Introduction to Digital Humanities

Fall 2015, Fall 2016
Graduate Seminar
Department of History, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
This seminar introduced students to the theories and methods of the digital humanities and provided opportunities for hands-on experimentation with DH tools and techniques. We engaged with a broad spectrum of readings that situate the digital humanities historically and give an overview of emerging practices, theoretical underpinnings and disciplinary paradigms of the field. A series of tutorials provided hands-on experience with a range of common digital humanities tools. The seminar culminated in a final project in which students applied DH methodologies to their own research interests.
