HIST 4899 Hacking the Humanities: Programming and Analysis for Literary and Historical Studies (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This course will introduce humanities students to a variety of digital research methods. Students will learn the basics of Python programming for literary and historical studies, encounter a number of tools widely used by digital humanists (such as MALLET, Gephi, and GIS programs), and engage with theoretical works that underpin the field. While we will encounter open questions and the epistemological justification for digital research, this class is primarily a methods one. After completing this course, students will be able build or apply digital tools in their own research. Designed for graduate students/upper-level undergraduates. No programming or command-line experience required.
