Designing a Humanistic Computing Curriculum

Planning a humanistic computing curriculum integrating the humanities and computer science.

University of Tennessee, Knoxville faculty Project Co-Directors Amy Elias (Humanities Center Director and English), Hilary Havens (English), and Amir Sadovnik (Computer Science) will develop new undergraduate courses in “humanistic computing” that bridge the humanities and the computing sciences and bring together computing science skills; humanities pedagogy and habits of inquiry; and experiential-learning opportunities with community partners in East Tennessee, campus partners, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory partners. This grant will fund two workshops and a year of monthly planning activities for a cohort of UTK faculty and community organizations working to define these classes for the UTK General Education curriculum as well as for a future minor in Humanities Computing. Open to all students, classes will be interdisciplinary and include critical cultural analysis of digital media and computers; skills training in computer programs; and engaged learning course projects.
