Digital Humanities & The Anthropocene
Download Full Text
This course, taught by Paul Harris and Melanie Hubbard, engages upper-division undergraduate and graduate students in the emerging field of Digital Humanities (DH) through projects grounded in the study and analysis of literary texts. Students will develop research skills using digital tools (including textual analysis tools and mapping tools) and integrate quantitative methods with qualitative analysis and close reading. Students will develop individual and collaborative projects in both critical and creative modes, assembling multi-media projects. These projects will explore themes including networks, mapping and power; the environmental impact of digital technologies; literature, theory, and ecology in the Anthropocene era.
