Spotlight on Digital Tools for the Liberal Arts
What’s this class about?
If you’re thinking about writing a thesis that has a digital component, or if you’re interested in wielding data for your research projects in new and exciting ways, this is the Half Block for you. This course, a hands-on workshop, will provide you with exposure to a variety of different cloud-based platforms for the digital liberal arts. You’ll look at tools for data modeling, linguistic/corpus analysis, text encoding, data visualization, and social network analysis.
What are the times and dates?
The first week of Half Block: January 8-12, with class from 9am-noon.
What kinds of skills will I learn?
You’ll learn new platforms and software for data visualization and modeling; you’ll also learn how to simplify complex data into concepts and images anyone can understand.
