Introduction to Digital Humanities Series

Library: In this four-part introductory series, participants will be introduced to digital humanities concepts, methods, and tools.


Introduction to Digital Humanities Series

Digital humanities is an interdisciplinary field that combines the methods and tools of digital technology with the study of humanities disciplines such as literature, history, linguistics, art, and cultural studies.

In this four-part introductory series, participants will be introduced to digital humanities concepts, methods, and tools. Part 1 will provide an overview of DH including basic vocabulary of concepts, and a sampling of DH projects. With a solid foundation to build on, parts 2-4 will shift to practical, hands-on engagement with three distinct and specific digital humanities methods and their corresponding tools.

  • Part 1: What is Digital Humanities? - Wednesday, October 4, 12-1pm

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In this introductory session, participants will look at varying definitions of digital humanities, explore how DH tools can supplement and enhance traditional humanities research, and learn basic best practices for preparing data for analysis. Participants will also be introduced to a sampling of DH projects that use different DH methodologies and tools.

  • Part 2:  Sentiment Analysis - Wednesday, October 18, 12-1pm -

​​​​​​​Sentiment analysis, also known as opinion mining, is a natural language processing (NLP) technique used to determine and extract the sentiment or emotional tone expressed in a piece of text, such as a sentence, paragraph, or document. The primary goal of sentiment analysis is to assess whether the sentiment in the text is positive, negative, neutral, or even more nuanced, such as identifying specific emotions like joy, anger, sadness, or surprise.
