Welcome to An Introduction to Digital Humanities!

 

  • Overview of DH Projects
  • Contact, Policies, General Information, Office Hours here.
  • Evaluation and Grading Rubrics here.
  • Download a copy of the full syllabus here.
  • Reading List - see links in each week's class information.

Remember: you must show evidence of your reading outside of class in your weekly Work Log! The assigned reading is detailed before each class in the 'Preparation' links in the Syllabus (below).  Evidence of reading is also demonstrated by asking questions based on what you've read, by engaging in thoughtful discussions with your group and class, and by experimenting with some of the concepts/tools you learn about outside of class and detailing this in your Work Log.  Grading of this aspect of the course by the instructor and TA is based on observation, discussion, attendance and participation and contributes to the 'Assignments/Reading/Pre-Class Preparation' and 'In Class Participation' grades (20% and 20% respectively).
