Engaging Students in Digital Humanities

I’m already teaching a workshop on this topic, but I’d love to see a session on the place of undergrads in the digital humanities.  Our workshop, Integrating Digital Humanities Projects into the Undergraduate Curriculum, covers one aspect of that integration, integrating an existing DH project into a class.  But, there are many more issues to discuss.

  • How do you train students in digital humanities?
  • Which methodologies do you teach and how?
  • How can we create a pipeline to graduate school or should we?
  • Which texts should you use?

I’m sure we can come up with more questions and some answers, too.

    I particularly like online art exhibits. The National Gallery of Art has several outstanding examples of this genre. Online art exhibts bring national exhibts to rural areas and make for an excellent use of taxpayer money; they are a useful way to make use of digital humanities research and work.

    I agree–I think that public humanities is a great way to engage undergrads into digital humanities while promoting civic engagement, a key value in liberal education.
