Studying the Digital Humanities

  • Our first experience with studying the digital humanities came with closely reading a chapter from The Companion to Digital Humanities discussing concepts regarding the digital humanities and to then apply the concepts of Unsworth’s scholarly primitives and Svensson’s modes to our selected chapter.  I selected a chapter by the author Eiteljorg entitled Computing for Archaeologists.
         Below are my thoughts from my study of this DH Chapter:
  • Our second experience with studying the digital humanities was to evaluate a digital humanities project and to present the project collaboratively with other members of the class. We were also required to discuss Unsworth’s primitivies and Svensson’s modes further. My group researched the September 11 Digital Archive, and presented the information using PowerPoint.  The presentation was recorded, and can be found at YouTube by following this link: 
  • Our third and final experience studying the digital humanities was to closely read and analyze a chapter from Bolter & Grusin’s book, Remediation.  We then conducted a blog post analysis of the media chapter.
