ENGL 5650: Introduction to Digital Humanities
Instructor: Yohei Igarashi
This discussion-based graduate seminar, open also to interested undergraduate students, explores the following topics. What does it mean to study literature and culture today, in the digital age? How can data be used to study literature and culture? How are digital technologies and computation changing how we read and write? Assignments include experiments with computational text analysis tools, shorter written assignments, a presentation, and a final project, and will be coordinated with a visiting speaker series at the UConn Humanities Institute.
