Digital Humanities Lab

Digital Humanities Lab

The digital humanities lab is a 1-credit course designed to help students discover digital tools and techniques that they can apply to any discipline they are exploring at the university. Students in the humanities have devised projects for SURF, forensic science students have used interactive mapping and timeline tools to present their research, and marine biology students have created podcasts to educate the general public. Guided by an interdisciplinary team of faculty, students in the lab learn about the projects faculty have mentored in the past and gather via zoom for weekly workshops to experiment and brainstorm possibilities.

Pandemic as Social Mirror

Pandemic as Social Mirror

In early 2020, Covid-19 swept across the globe and changed our world. Almost overnight, “life” went virtual, and the pandemic highlighted complex issues of politics, leadership, education, race, and class. Major portions of the world economy shut down. Pollution fell dramatically in urban areas, and as people moved out of public spaces wildlife moved in. Scholars from across the College of Arts and Sciences will hold a mirror up to the social, economic, and environmental disruption of the pandemic to examine our emerging new world and examine how resilience develops in a time of crisis. The course format will be a series of TED-style talks, with conversations among faculty and students about questions related to cultural and social response to the pandemic. 3 credits; will fulfill Core 7.1.

Transforming Humanities Texts

Transforming Humanities Texts

This project brings open pedagogy into conversation with scholarly editing to support humanities courses in disciplines including philosophy, literature, history, and anthropology. It is designed to encourage rigorous (also, authentic and enjoyable) reading experiences for students. Our goal is to build documentary editions that grow and change to incorporate the work of the students who read and investigate them. A robust set of faculty resources—assignment templates, technical guidance, and workshops—will encourage adopters and adapters of editions to join in the fun.
