ENGL 4709/5709: Digital Humanities

ENGL 4709/5709: Digital Humanities
Fall 2012
Bemidji State University
Prof M C Morgan
Tuesdays, 4:00 - 6:40

With changes in production and distribution come changes in humanities. Old masters give way to amateurs. The elite gives way to the mob. The unique gives way to mechanical and then digital reproduction. The individual creation gives way to the collaborative and communal, the remix and the mashup.

ENGL 4709/5709: Digital Humanities will look at what has happened and what is happening to the arts and sciences as analog invention, creation, and production give way to digital processes, creators, mindsets, and values. For readers, writers, artists, scholars, amateurs, and anyone else interested in how the humanities work.

We will survey the objects and artifacts created, the spaces, materials, tools, and processes of current digital humanities. A few recent writers will frame our survey, and we'll go looking online and off to find what else we can find as we consider what sense we can make of the current landscape. Maps provided. Exploration required. Here be monsters.
