In this Global Classrooms course, students of the University of Maryland and Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, will come together to learn how to create and assess websites from a critical and humanities-focused perspective. Specifically, the course will introduce "minimal computing" approaches, which privilege the use of open technologies, ownership of data and code, reduction in computing infrastructure and, consequently, environmental impact. The course is structured around a group project with students from both universities. You will collaborate virtually to create a multilingual (Spanish and English) digital edition of a colonial era text, while learning about Digital Humanities approaches to literary studies, digital publishing, history, and postcolonial studies.
