This 200 level course will introduce students to methods and technologies in the digital humanities. Through readings, discussions and lab sessions to work hands on with emerging technologies tools, students will learn about the major issues digital humanists face, how to evaluate technologies to pursue new types of questions, and how scholarly communication is evolving.
