Aims/Description: This team-taught module will give students an introduction and insight into issues and challenges of the acquisition, markup, analysis, dissemination, and re-use of digital humanities data, and - through a series of case studies of electronic resources created in different Humanities disciplines - shows how digital technology has the potential to transform how Humanities scholars conduct research and the type of questions they can ask of the material they study. Topics investigated include: techniques for collecting and/or creating data, data markup, data mining and visualisation, 3D reconstruction and virtual worlds, and user generated content.
