Intro DH | Welcome UW Students!

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 4.49.45 PM

Hello and welcome to our seminar, Intro to Digital Humanities! As Tyler Fox and I mentioned at our first meeting, this course is exploratory. We–definitely me–will be using it as an opportunity to find out what, why, and how Digital Humanities (DH) is what it is or, perhaps more accurately, is in relation to what others claim on its behalf. From mapping Ireland’s literary history to re-contextualizing discourse in the midst of combat, much digital output falls under the DH umbrella.  We will be exploring the diverse nature of what the term covers, but we’ll also be checking out the umbrella itself, investigating and dissecting what it’s made of and what assumptions we may be making on its behalf. I look forward to working with and learning alongside all of you this quarter.
