Introduction to Digital Studies in the Arts and Humanities
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, S-F
An introduction to digital studies in the arts and humanities, broadly conceived as the critical, creative, and practical engagement with digital media, methods, tools, and experiences, as well as the theoretical and conceptual bases for understanding them.
Cross-listed with AMST629U. Credit granted for MITH610 or AMST629U. Digital Studies is an interdisciplinary approach to scholarship and teaching that combines the critical study of new forms of digital media, culture, and identity with creative practices and the applicati onof computational tools to areas of humanistic study. While it is often hands-on or applied, Digital Studies also demands approaches that are primarily critical, theoretical, speculative, or experimental- imaginative-in nature. Broadly speaking then, Digital Studies is a response to the widespread influence of digital media across nearly every aspect of contemporary life; more specifically, it recognizes that teaching, research, and scholarship in the arts and humanities cannot and will not remain isolated from the networks, platforms, and media providers all around us. This course is designed to introduce yo u to several different (and divergent) topics and practices in this diverse, complex, and rapidly changing area.
