DHSI 2015

Welcome to DHSI 2015 at the University of Victoria.

I’ll be teaching two courses this year and supervising students in the Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities Program through the Department of English.

May 25-29

DHUM501: An Introduction to Digital Humanities
This course provides a graduate-level introduction to the digital humanities field (“DH”) in where arts and humanities inquiries intersect with digital technologies.  Adopting both pragmatic and theoretical approaches to the field, we will collaboratively survey intellectual traditions and emergent concerns associated with computing in the arts and humanities.  Lectures and workshops assume no prior knowledge of the field or preexisting technical competencies beyond the ability to send an email and browse the web.

June 8-12

Understanding the Pre-Digital Book
This seminar is aimed at literary scholars, historians, archivists, librarians, booklovers, and others — whether or not they have a digital humanities project in mind — who wish to learn more about book culture in history and contexts from the medieval through modern periods. Each class session will combine intensive lectures with individual and small group hands-on work with items from UVic’s special collections to focus on the circumstances of production and the continuous reception of objects that were “unique reproductions” (manuscripts) and “repetitive reproductions” (printed books).

May 25-June 30
