Introduction to Primary Source Research Methods | ILS 39500

Instructors

  • Annette Bochenek
  • Sammie Morris
  • Bert Chapman

Description

Consequences inevitably arise from the creation and use of information. This seminar course examines historical and current societal issues and challenges related to producing and consuming information. The course delves into how the use and misuse of information has resulted in historical and contemporary challenges, including ethical concerns in the dissemination of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) information, during the 20th and 21 centuries, the capturing and sharing of surveillance and privacy information, the creation and sharing of disinformation and ‘fake’ news, and information on social media that takes on a life of its own (i.e., going viral). New issues will be examined weekly and students will be able to introduce topics of interest, as well. The cumulative final project will allow students to select and explore their own topics on an evolving information practice and its influence on culture or society.

Digital Humanities Foundations | ILS 63000

Instructors

  • Matthew Hannah

Description

This course will provide a sweeping introduction to many of the tools and concepts central to the Digital Humanities. DH is a newer area of study, supplementing the study and teaching of the humanities and social sciences with computing tools that provoke new questions. The course is divided into two concurrent tracks: 1) One session per week will be spent discussing readings about the central debates within the field in discussion-based lecture periods and exploring existing DH projects to gain familiarity with contemporary work; 2) Students will also learn to apply software tools to their home disciplines in weekly lab sessions where students will be required to reconceptualize their research into datasets with an eye toward building an original digital project or exhibit. There are no pre-requisites, and graduate students and advanced undergraduates are welcome from any department. While there are no technical skills required, students should know the basics of their chosen computer interface as we will be downloading software and navigating file paths.
