What does it mean to bring digital humanities (DH) theories and methods into the classroom? What new possibilities for learning emerge when students are asked to engage humanities material as data, and use techniques such as network analysis, visualization, and text analysis? How do humanistic methods transform approaches to data science? Come hear insights from teachers from different humanities fields, social science and computer science who have used DH in their teaching and advising of independent research.
