Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The groundwork of almost any digital humanities project is laid through the collection and organisation of the data that will be studied. This might be texts, images, spreadsheets, or any other collection of information and resources. This project class provides a hands-on introduction to the management, organization, and modeling of the digital data we collect. The lessons will cover how to process and access flat-file formats such as Excel and CSV, how to build tabular data up into a relational database, alternative database solutions such as XML databases for projects that make heavy use of XML encodings such as that of the TEI, and data storage and modeling with the use of graph databases.

Assessment and permitted materials

Grades will be based on a combination of class participation, completion of homework assignments, and completion of an individual final project. Homework assignments will, where possible, be submitted using the DataCamp platform (https://www.datacamp.com/).
