Course Abstract

Winter 2014 –┬áCOMPLIT 338D
Co-Instructor: Mike Widner

In this course, we will explore the perspectives of scholars who have thought about what “digital humanities” means and the technologies and tools that are shaping new kinds of research, scholarship, and publishing. Topics will include history of the digital humanities, textual studies, electronic literature, computational and new media, and emerging work around text, image, and new media curation and visualization. This course is organized as a mix of seminar and workshop and will be featuring a new platform designed for Stanford students that presents multiple platforms, media, and texts to digitally engage with narratives surrounding 9/11; active engagement by all participants is expected. Students will contribute to the field with a creative final project that they develop over the course of the quarter.
