#dariahTeach is delighted to announce the launch of its first course: Introduction to Digital Humanities. Rather than choose one of the many alternative histories in Digital Humanities or attempt to cover the entirety of the field, the partners of the #dariahTeach consortium adopted multivariant, inclusive, community-based approach to explore the history, practice and people involved in this evolving, interdisciplinary field.
This course consists of a series of videos featuring a variety of voices and perspectives discussing a range of methodologies and theoretical approaches. At present, we have two strands: one that addresses the question What is Digital Humanities under the title: ‘My Digital Humanities’; and a second entitled ‘Digital Humanities in Practice’ which goes into more depth theoretically or methodologically, or focuses on disciplinary practice, standards or approaches.
Beginning 12 October 2016, #dariahTeach will launch one video a week through 14 December. Beginning 1 January 2017, we will be accepting videos or video proposals from the community. These videos will be peer-reviewed. Videos may be submitted in any language, but in languages other than English, English subtitles must be provided.
Over the coming weeks information on how to submit a video will be made available. We welcome community involvement in this series, from contributing videos to translating existing videos. We will be accepting multiple videos on the same theme, but discourage project-or institutional-specific content.
