Digital Humanities examines the use of computing tools and digital research methods to study culture and society. This course will explore techniques for accessing and analysing digital texts and images alongside the theoretical and methodological frameworks of digital humanities. We will cover topics such as digitisation, digital access, information extraction, markup languages, network analysis and digital image analysis. Students will be able to explore aspects that relate to their research or professional interests through project work in the second part of the course. The course is taught through a combination of practical workshops, lectures and student-led activities and discussion.
