From Craig Clarkson
Kristina Benham (History)

Daniel Watkins (History)Tuesday, September 20, 2:00-3:00 pm
Humanities scholarship has long prized "close reading" of texts. Increasingly, however, scholars have embraced digital tools for mining, analyzing, and visualizing texts and other data to gain new insights. Such methods are not only for high-level scholarship. In this session, faculty from English, Art, and History will share teaching strategies built around digital humanities tools. Participants will learn about simpler open-access tools and our library support for more sophisticated programs. By integrating digital humanities tools into our teaching, students encounter subjects in unexpected and impactful ways.
