    Abstract:
    This course will begin with an introduction to Digital Humanities as a practice, a toolset, and a community. We will focus on the role of digital methods in historical and cultural research: the tools you learn in class, as well as those you investigate as part of the assignments, will help you to ground a topic of your choice (be it a person, an event, a historical artifact, a piece of writing, a location, or a work of literature, a work of music, or visual or performance art) in its historical or social context. This will enhance your understanding of your chosen topic and show you how digital tools can help you to organize, investigate, and interpret sources using a different lens, develop an argument based on your findings, and to create a digital humanities project of your own.
