A revolution is underway in humanities and social science research. New questions can be asked when texts, images and sound can be rearranged in ways unimaginable before the digital era. New analyses come into being when we can query millions of texts at once. New ways of disseminating and visualising information are being explored on the internet. This course will introduce some of the most exciting areas in digital humanities research on texts, from their creation, mining and analysis, to their visualisation including geo-spatial data, and on to their archiving and dissemination. Through discussions, hands-on tutorials, projects and lectures, students will learn the theoretical and practical foundations for working with texts and other cultural phenomena in ways relevant to languages, linguistics, history, literature. No technical background is required.
Learning OutcomesUpon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate a basic understanding of key research areas in digital humanities.
- Demonstrate research skills allowing them to conduct research using one or more of the new digital humanities methods
- Discuss the theoretical implications of modelling data through these methods
- Examine and evaluate digital humanities projects
