GEN ST 197
Small-group discussion with faculty representing a wide spectrum of academic disciplines. Topics and approaches vary. Instructor may introduce research techniques or findings, concentrate on readings in his/her area of interest, or illustrate problems and alternatives related to the study of a particular academic discipline. Credit/no-credit only. Offered: AWSp.
This seminar will introduce students to the emergent field of Digital Humanities (DH). DH means different things, but broadly speaking it can be considered to lie at the nexus of critical thinking about digital culture, integrating technology into traditional humanities practice, and incorporating research methodologies from social sciences or other disciplines. It can also be a combination there in. Students will participate in hands-on workshops in digital imaging, media reformatting, mapping, textual analysis, design research and more! We will also incorporate recent digital scholarship and guest presenters from digital scholars on campus.
