The rise of hypertext and the social web, the ability to digitize high-quality images and texts in archives, and the accessibility of low cost computing power have yielded a range of developments in humanities research and in the production of texts.  In this advanced humanities seminar, a working tour of the digital humanities, we will explore these questions from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Along the way, we will work individually and collaboratively to both learn about the digital humanities and contribute to the field.

Among some of the projects we worked on includes a digital encoding of a page from Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden,” contribution to UNE’s Saco River Estuary Study via digitalizing some of their research, and a remediation of one of our own past projects.
