ENG 150 Introduction to the Digital Humanities

This course examines the intersection of computers and the humanities (usually the areas of study that address art, literature, and human expression). The course provides an overview of key terms and debates in the digital humanities and asks students to explore a number of its methods such as text mining, digital mapping, and information visualization. These activities will prompt students to think about our relationship with humanities artifacts and the ways we might understand them. [H, W]
