New Course: Introduction to the Digital Humanities - Presidential Dream Course


Spring 2015
, History of Science / Geography Presidential Dream Course

An interdisciplinary exploration of new datasets, tools, and forms of display made possible by 21st -century computing technologies that redraw the lines of inquiry about our past, present, and future. The Digital Humanities is a fast-paced field of play based on collaboration, cross-disciplinarity, and an open mind about rethinking space, time and meaning. Our team-based classroom activities will expose students to new ways of working with diverse kinds of information, sharpen their interpretive skills, and offer them the opportunity to create knowledge and share it with the world.
