Courses Offered Spring 2015



Special Events: Digital Humanities Dream Course - New Time and Place!


Spring 2015
, History of Science / Geography Presidential Dream Course.  Participating in hands-on lab experiences in teams under the mentorship of faculty and graduate students, students will design and pursue short-term examples of research projects in the humanities through the use of digital tools and methods such as three-dimensional visualization, data- and text-mining, GIS, pattern-discovery apps, and remixing.  Together, we’ll learn to use computer technologies to produce, preserve, and study cultural materials, creating new knowledge collaboratively in teams and individually, both face-to-face and virtually.  Included in the 2014-2015 objectives for digital humanities at OU is recognition of the innovative ways in which our graduate students are using digital means to experiment with emerging genres of written and visual communication to engage in scholarship and public humanities through the use of new media, in addition to explorations with new research tools and other innovative forms of digital scholarly inquiry.
