Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

What is (or are) the Digital Humanities? What relevance do digital methods have for research in the different humanistic disciplines? What does it mean to “do digital humanities”? This course is an introduction and overview of the field of Digital Humanities, intended for students of the Master’s degree in History. We will cover the history of the field to the present day, and take a closer look at the relationship between computational analysis, humanistic theory, and hermeneutics. We will also touch on more practical aspects of the digital humanities such as the representation of cultural artifacts, and particularly texts, within the digital domain. By the end of the course students should have a good understanding of how we formalize and model concepts from the humanistic disciplines into the digital domain, and will be aware of the plethora of further hands-on training opportunities in Digital Humanities tools and techniques across Austria, Europe, and the rest of the world.

Assessment and permitted materials

Assessment will be by written examination at the end of the course (mixed multiple-choice and free-form questions). Written notes are allowed; mobile phones, tablets, and laptops are not allowed.
