Course description:

Introduction to Digital Research in Arts and Humanities will offer an overview of new, emerging, and established digital methods for individual researchers and research teams. Topics covered will include what research “data” means in an arts and humanities context, visualizing research, marking up texts, designing personal databases of research material, using location information in research, and more.

Digital humanities research is a growing area within the UK and abroad. This course will give participants an overview of several different digital research methodologies and tools; some of them may be of immediate use for existing research projects, while others are most usefully deployed in larger teams working collaboratively on funded projects.

This course will introduce participants to these tools and methodologies, with space for discussion and questions.

No technical skill required; all those with an interest are encouraged to attend!
