WDW338H1: Data: Access, Creation, Curation, and Interpretation

Hours: 
24L/12P

A central challenge of digital humanities is the complexity of representing interpretive, narrative, and perspective-dependent humanities data through digital tools and environments. Topics include the history of “data” as term and concept; data standards, databases, and linked data; datasets, data curation and analytics, both qualitative and quantitative; and data visualization.
