HIST 2802 Digital Detectives: Sherlock Holmes (Spring: 3 )
In this course we will read and analyze the Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories in their historical context using a variety of digital tools. These include, but are not limited to, tracking character movement using mapping software, visualizing changes in characters’ social networks, and comparing stylistic shifts in the works. We will also use a variety of contemporary historical materials such as digitized newspaper articles and case files. The course will culminate in an analytical or creative digital project that will employ skills learned during class: possibilities include projects that feature mapping, timelines, 3D modelling, or game building.
