Technology for Digital Humanities

The digital humanities (DH) is a field of study at the crossroads of computing and humanities disciplines. It entails both the methodical usage of digital resources in the humanities and the analysis of their use. Innovative methods of conducting scholarship that combines cooperative, interdisciplinary, and technologically engaged research can be termed DH.

How can we use primary sources of knowledge to ask new questions, now that there are more digital sources available online than ever before? In the past, how did settlers organize themselves on their journeys? What factors influenced the development and growth of the automobile industry? How can you analyze and interpret 100,000 newspaper articles at once? How can we make interactive visualizations to showcase information? A wide range of digital tools, methodologies, and sources can be used to investigate the answers to these questions.

New tools and standards have been developed to convert digitized collections and artifacts into machine-readable data. GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) institutes are using these tools and technologies to digitize their material. Humanities scholars have been able to process vast quantities of textual material thanks to these technologies.

This course will introduce you to all of the different areas of digital humanities research and scholarship. It will help you bring your field of study or interest to life using digital tools, whether you are a student or researcher, librarian or archivist, museum curator or public historian – or someone with just plain curiosity.
