Digital Humanities: Summer 2013


Nancy E. Friedland


Long Island University


Summer 2013


The course will explore multiple aspects of digital humanities — a term loosely defined as the intersection between humanities research and scholarship and computing applications. Digital Humanities is both an academic discipline and a practice that defines new directions for research, teaching and learning. The course will provide a foundation in humanities scholarship and the various disciplines. Lectures and discussions will focus on the following: research methods and essential resources, tools and methods used by digital humanists, new trends in scholarship, planning and managing digital projects, new models for publishing, and funding. The course will also focus special attention to the role of libraries in supporting digital humanities
