Classes: Introduction to Digital Humanities

‘Introduction to Digital Humanities’ was a new postgraduate course run by Dr Suzanne Paylor at Birkbeck College that examined the impact of technology on humanities research practice. It combined aspects of media studies, humanities computing and literary studies to foster an appreciation of the core methods and practical, political/philosophical and pedagogical issues in digital humanities.

I wrote and taught the following four classes in the Spring 2007 and Winter 2008 terms.
