Presence and participation (30% of the final grade) In addition to regular attendance, students are expected to actively contribute to class discussions. Students should try whenever possible to attend the series of master classes in digital humanities and text analysis that will run parallel to this course.
Project development (30% of the final grade) Students will be asked to participate in biweekly online discussions of the readings and case studies. These will begin as individual responses to the reading, and then take the form of small group assignments that will build towards the final project.
Final Research Proposal (40% of the final grade) Over the course of the semester, students will be working individually or in small groups to develop a sample research proposal in the digital humanities. On the last day of class, each group will offer a short presentation of their proposal and get feedback from their instructors and classmates. The final research proposal will be due a few weeks later.
