Textual Data and Digital Texts in the Undergraduate Classroom

A one-week in-person institute hosted at Mississippi State University on approaches to computational textual analysis and how these techniques may be incorporated into the classroom. This institute will be followed by a series of virtual sessions focused on digital pedagogy and the humanities.

While the digital humanities often center on developing long-term research projects, it is the goal of our Advanced Topics in Digital Humanities Institute to bring the tools and methods of the digital humanities directly to the undergraduate classroom. “Textual Data and Digital Texts in the Undergraduate Classroom” aims to expand engagement with and access to digital humanities, particularly at under-resourced institutions, by teaching undergraduate instructors how to incorporate small-scale, data-focused digital projects into their humanities teaching. Our institute will include a one-week in-person session with hands-on instruction in turning text into data, and then analyzing that data and sharing the results. This week will be followed by bimonthly virtual sessions with experts in digital pedagogy. By the end of the institute, participants will have developed a classroom DH project or assignment about textual data.
