Technologies of Text

Technologies of Text

This course introduces students to a variety of platforms available for the publication of text on the web in the context of technologies from earlier periods, like the letterpress and linotype machine. Students experiment with the markup languages used in contemporary publication platforms (HTML, Wikicode, and XML) and, after an introduction to the techniques of scholarly editing, select a short text to edit for publication online. Throughout the course, we will consider how the labor of authors, editors, publishers, and printers has shifted and what this means for the texts we produce and consume in our lives. Successful completion of this course will provide students with a digital edition, an editorial frame of mind, and impressive facility with markup languages.

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.

Digital Humanities Lab

Digital Humanities Lab

Digital humanists share a commitment to experimentation with an ever-expanding set of digital tools to ask important questions about our world. Scholars in this field use (and create) tools to present the results of their research in ways that make an impact. The goal of the DH lab is to introduce undergraduate students to possibilities for research by sharing what faculty and students here at the University of New Haven have been doing. In the second half of the course, students will have an opportunity to experiment in close collaboration with one of the faculty members teaching the course.
