15 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: IPA610

Co-requisites: IPA640

Aims/Description: This team-taught module explores key methodologies in the e-humanities in detail, showing 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. The module builds on topics introduced in the Introduction to Digital Humanities module by providing hands-on experience working on specific tasks such as identifying user requirements, interface design, creating visualisations, project planning, and developing plans for dissemination, preservation and sustainability. Students will develop these skills through the design, development and critical evaluation of a project plan.
