Digital Humanities - NYU / V22.0380-001-CSCI-UA.380-1: Computing in the Humanities and the Arts

Prof Deena Engel, Department of Computer Science

Topics in the field of Humanities Computing include but are not limited to: digitization of text and image; hypertext design and delivery; working with multi-lingual texts and topics in machine translation; electronic publishing and dissemination; OCR; and designing databases of images, documents, and text. We will analyze the impact of technology on research in the Humanities and the Arts as well as delivery as seen through current technology in libraries and museums. Students will also be encouraged to learn about and evaluate current computing tools and methodologies in their specific fields within the Humanities and the Arts. (Note: Projects based on the NYU Archives are also linked from Bobst Library, NYU Archives.)
