This website was for the spring 2019 Loyola Marymount University class, Digital Humanities (ENGL 5998). The course, taught by Paul Harris and Melanie Hubbard, engaged upper-division undergraduate and graduate students in the emerging field of Digital Humanities (DH) through projects grounded in the study and analysis of literary texts. Students developed research skills using digital tools (including textual analysis tools and mapping tools) and integrated quantitative methods with qualitative analysis and close reading. For their final projects, students worked in small groups to create digital objects that explore the novel A Tale for the Time Being and its evocation of Anthropocene era themes. See the course syllabus for more information.
