Expanded Course Description
This course introduces students to the Digital Humanities (DH) — broadly defined as the use of digital tools, platforms, and critical perspectives to address humanistic topics. Traditionally, scholars and teachers have approached literary texts through “close reading” methods that analyze fiction as well as non-fiction at the level of the word, sentence, or paragraph. Software and computational methods, in contrast, give us the opportunity to “distant read” and “machine read”: to process an entire book, or even a whole “corpus” or group of texts, at once to allow users to perceive patterns and trends that open into entirely different ways of reading. This course will train students in a number of those tools, while also giving them the grounding in critical theory and vocabulary to adequately discuss and comprehend the possibilities behind these tools as a mode of literary and cultural analysis. Students will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with an Ethnic American literary archive and exploring the possibilities for digital analysis and adaptation of archival material.
