Expanded Course Description
How are humanities disciplines leveraging the digital turn to forge a new role in the public sphere? How might digital and print cultures reshape the way we study forms of cultural expression? In this capstone course to the minor in Digital Humanities (DH) you’ll have an opportunity to discuss these questions as we examine the transformation of the written word and publishing forms in the digital era. Part of our study will entail the creation of an original term-length digital research project of your choice. The project must be approved by the course instructor, and should consider the intersection of digital knowledge making and the creation, preservation, or study of culture. Projects can be created by individuals or can be part of a collaboration with a faculty member or fellow student(s) at UO. Possible term-length projects include:

  • The creation of a digital edition (interpretation) of a text The creation of a digital research collection/archive/exhibit The development of a digital public humanities project An exploration using digital tools of a social issue (present or past) A creation of a digital modeling or textual analysis project to study words, concepts, and their meanings The creation of a digital storytelling project The creation of a digital game The creation of a digital story/narrative map
  • To complete your term-length project you’ll need to develop a project idea (something manageable in 10 weeks) that makes an argument about your specific topic; identify the scholarly content and appropriate digital tools/platforms (in consultation with the instructor); and, if necessary, develop clear workflow practices among group members. Projects will demonstrate proficiency with both the digital tools used to build the project and the subjects the project addresses. If, for example, you choose to create a digital edition of a collection of poems, you’ll need to demonstrate your knowledge of the poems, the author, the cultural/literary form, and the contexts in which you’re interpreting the work as well as the digital tool (TEI, Wordpress, etc.) used to help you interpret or visualize the texts in your project. Just like any other form of scholarship, course projects will be evaluated on their success in implementing the digital tool in ways that make a clear and persuasive argument.
