COLT 18.02 The Humanist in the Computer: Making Digital (Con)Texts

This course introduces the emerging field of the Digital Humanities, a discipline and a set of practices that ask how computers reshape the way we study literature and art to better understand what it means to be human. For example, we will learn how to computationally “read” a very large collection of novels, publish electronic texts encoded in XML, write interactive essays in Twine or Inkle, and analyze electronic literature like e-poems and video games.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
