Digital Publishing with Minimal Computing: Humanities at a Global Scale
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
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. Knowledge of the Spanish language is not required as teaching and collaboration will be conducted in English. In the spirit of fostering a multilingual approach, however, we will not discourage the use of Spanish among students and instructors; mutual respect and cooperation are paramount to the success of your course project.
Cross-listed with CMLT398M, ENGL378M, and LASC348C. Credit granted for MITH301, CMLT398M, ENGL378M, or LASC348C.

Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Positioned as a companion to a disciplinary research methods course, this course emphasizes best practices and critical approaches in the context of the lifecycle of a collaborative research project from ideation to publication to preservation. This course explores common digital methodologies as it teaches collaboration and fast prototyping to help students develop a reflexive critical approach to digital research projects. Upon completing the course, students will have a research plan, including the beginnings of a literature review, wireframes, and proposal for the lifecycle of the research project.
