    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Andrew Goldstone’s syllabus for a graduate course on literary data is explicit about its dual aims: “to engage with the history and current practice of literary data analysis, and to introduce the foundational skills of literary data analysis in the R programming language.” Through readings on the history and theory of data, coupled with programming exercises designed to introduce students to basic computational operations and constructs, Goldstone provides a model for how students might apply computational methods to humanistic research questions with historical, theoretical, and technical considerations in mind. Its focus on literary data functions as a valuable illustration of how a disciplinary focus can lead to greater depth of understanding; and its hybrid class structure might present a model for how to teach programming in the context of a humanities seminar.
