Welcome to Computing in the Humanities
Computing in the Humanities is an exciting field that explores computer technologies as applied to research and delivery in the scholarly fields of the humanities and the arts. It includes working with the digitization of texts and images to capture and record source materials; designing hypertext and delivery systems to analyze textual materials and to produce inter-active web sites; and creating databases of images, documents and multi-media objects to catalogue and study collections. These tools can be applied to research and education in the fields of history, languages and literature, cultural studies, art history and many others.
This seminar will be conducted through a combination of lecture and discussion sessions, readings, and hands-on classes in a computer lab. The seminar is designed for faculty participants who are comfortable with basic computer tools (such as searching the Internet, e-mail, word processing) and who are familiar with teaching, research, developing curricula or related endeavors in the humanities. No previous experience in web site design is required.
This course meets Monday through Friday, June 7 - 11, 2010. We will meet for lectures in Kimmel (Room TBA) in the mornings and in the ITS Multi-Media Lab in the afternoons.
I look forward to working with all of you.
