Discover DH: Introduction to Digital Humanities Theories and Methods

Florida State University Libraries presents an introductory workshop series in the Digital Humanities. These sessions are designed to teach students and faculty the basic theories and methods behind digital research in the humanities. The courses cover a broad range of topics, from larger issues in digital research in the academy to specific tools and research techniques.

The weeks will be divided into “yack” sessions and “hack” sessions. The yack sessions will begin with a short presentation on an issue facing humanities scholars in the digital world. These will be followed by a discussion by all participants. For the hack sessions, we will begin learning a specific tool for humanities research. These sessions are hands-on and often require specific tools to be set up in advance.
