Digital Humanities is a method for asking new kinds of research questions from Humanities objects of study. For many researchers, especially those who are students, contingent labor, or pre-tenure, taking on a new and oftentimes long-term project is out of reach. The classroom can be a space to engage with materials in a new way, experiment with a new method in a small and targeted way, and broaden a student’s approach to the Humanities.
Scoping a new class project can be overwhelming especially when the tools and the methods are new. We’re here to help.

Textual Data and Digital Texts in the Undergraduate Classroom
NEH Institute for Advanced Topics in Digital Humanities | 2018-2019
Hosted by UGA, LSU, and Mississippi State this year-long institute focused on bring DH methods into the classroom. We held a week-long institute at MSU in July 2018 with tutorials on methods and discussions of how to incorporate these methods into a specific class. Our 24 participants are now engaged in virtual sessions with experts on teaching DH through the 18-19 academic year.
Textual Data and Digital Texts in the Undergraduate Classroom has our syllabus as well as the types of projects our participants are envisioning.
