The Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library is offering a seminar on Digital Humanities and Premodern Studies: An Introduction.
The Center for Renaissance Studies indicates that “this course introduces the methods, approaches, uses, and challenges of digital humanities with respect to the study of medieval and early modern cultures.”
The seminar will be held weekly on Thursdays, from 5 January 2023 to 9 March 2023 from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
Here is a course description for the seminar:
“This course will introduce you to methods, approaches, uses, and challenges of digital humanities with respect to the study of the premodern world. We will discuss the ways in which digital humanities shape premodern studies, consider the advantages and disadvantages in the increasing use of digital tools in the classroom, and learn the ins and outs of digital projects from the scholars creating them.
“We will also familiarize ourselves with some basic tools, approaches, and platforms available for the creation of digital resources, and learn how to use them by engaging with medieval and early modern materials from the Newberry’s collections.
“This seminar will take place in-person at the Newberry Library, but some virtual participation may be possible.”
The deadline for applications is 8 November 2022.
