Matariki Digital Humanities Colloquium, 23-25 October 2016, Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario).
Here are the links that I will mention, in order, either verbally or on slides in my talk, “Writing an ‘Introduction to Digital Humanities’ Syllabus? You May Need to Screw Around, Too!” In my talk, I suggest that we can use Stephen Ramsay’s essay “The Hermeneutics of Screwing Around; Or What You Do With A Million Books” to help those designing undergraduate surveys of the expansive and still-expanding field of Digital Humanities. I argue that we can organize DH surveys and make them meaningful to an undergraduate audience by connecting disparate methodological modules with DH projects geared toward undergraduate interests and resources that are particular to their institution. The thematic link between modules in my Winter “Introduction to DH” course at Dartmouth College will be social justice, and where possible, my examples are projects directed or demonstrated by my colleagues at Dartmouth.
