Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course corresponds to 5 ECTS and is part of the DH master module “theory and practice of DH”. It accompanies the introductory DH lecture course (lecture series) and is aimed at enabling students to search, read and use DH literature. – The first lesson of the course will be held online (the course link will be posted in the respective moodle course a few days before the courses start); the handling of the following lessons (online, in-presence, hybrid) will be discussed there. --- The course has three goals: (a) to provide students with a portfolio of basic readings at the intersection between traditional humanist theory and computational humanities; (b) to further elaborate on the topics treated in the lecture course; and (c) to discuss the techniques and methods of retrieving, evaluating and working with DH-related bibliography (this may include the creation of a glossary). The course will be held in English, but students will also be able to choose German texts. The course starts with a detailed introduction to the concept and requirements. After that, three blocks (of c. four weeks each) will be dedicated to the individual course goals.

Assessment and permitted materials

During the semester students will have to submit at least four written assignments (mostly summaries of texts). These (70%) together with the active participation (30%) will constitute the final mark.
