In order to receive a passing grade for the seminar, all students must participate in seminar practicums, complete several small assignments, and do one in-class presentation. Note that all assignments are non-programming in nature. We will spend a significant amount of time programming in the practicums, but successful completion of programming tasks is not an evaluative criteria for course completion.
All students must complete the following, non-programming assignments:
- Identify an electronic textual corpus for use throughout the course—Ideally one that speaks to your own scholarly interests.
- Have or maintain a Twitter account and make a minimum of three Digital Humanities related tweets over the course of the quarter.
- Sign up as an Editor at Large for Digital Humanities Now and complete a minimum of one review cycle.
- Test one Digital Humanities tool from the DH Toychest and present a review in class.
- Write a 2-5 page prospectus for a digital project in your chosen field of study. Prospectuses will be distributed to other seminar participants during the last regularly scheduled class (December 1) and will be discussed as a group at an informal gathering during finals week (exact time, data, and place TBD).
