HUMANITIES DATA MINING+MEANIN

ISS 255

Cultural analytics, the computational analysis of the state and dynamics of humanities data, is a rapidly rising and increasingly relevant domain of study. This course aims to introduce to students the interdisciplinary domain by teaching basic theoretical concepts and technical skills needed to begin practicing computational humanities. The course will provide students with a critical framework for understanding modern data science, and then enable students to learn basic data science practices as applied to humanities data sets within the critical framework ("computational humanities"). The semester will culminate in a group computational humanities project. Instructor: Herron
