Welcome to the Spring 2017 semester! For the next several months, I will be exploring the field of the Digital Humanities (DH), and will be posting my findings here, in the form of blog posts and reading lists. This is an independent study that I am pursuing under the advisement of Dr. Maria Zamora, and am calling "Into to the Digital Humanities."
My intention for the next two weeks of the semester is to compile a reading list, introducing myself, and others, to the Digital Humanities. This is truly going to be a step-by-step walkthrough, because this area of study is completely new to me, but I'm excited to learn more about this up-and-coming field. The articles and links that I share will contain information I have found to be particularly helpful in explaining introductory DH concepts, the history behind DH, key methodologies, and how it will impact the modern English classroom.
As the semester progresses, I will read the articles that I've compiled, and summarize and respond to them here in weekly posts. Toward the end of the semester, I will present some of my findings to my classmates in the English and Writing Studies program. My goal for the end of the semester is to compile a lit review, giving myself and others a comprehensive look into the field.
