Student Final Project for HUMN 100-The Humanities Now! Spring 2015

This spring I taught another iteration of HUMN 100 to a small group of highly motivated and talented students.  Like last semester, (see HUMN 100) this is a project-based class where students take an as yet unpublished manuscript from the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, PA and develop their DH skills.

This semester we were fortunate enough to work on the Travel Journal of Christian Froehlich and Jasper Payne.  Students started with the transcription of the manuscript and once a text had been established they were then able to analyze it using the lenses of the digital humanities.  The course website can be found here, where the outline, assignments, and blog posts are organized by topic (Close Reading, Distant Reading, Visualization, and Time).
