The types of sources that we will cover include maps, texts and tabular data. The potential for using images and multimedia material will also be discussed. We do not assume any familiarity with Humanities coursework although a good level of general competence with computers is helpful. Some advance reading may help.
Additionally, if you have your own data that you would like to use in GIS and use then please bring it along as the final sessions of the course will allow you to work with you own data if you so wish.

Digital images are a container for much of the information content in the Web-based delivery of images, books, newspapers, manuscripts, maps, scrolls, single sheet collections, and archival materials. To give scholars an unprecedented level of uniform and rich access to image-based resources hosted around the world, To define a set of common application programming interfaces that support interoperability between image repositories, and To develop, cultivate and document shared technologies, such as image servers and web clients, that provide a world-class user experience in viewing, comparing, manipulating and annotating images.
This course will introduce students to the basic concepts and technologies that make IIIF possible, allowing for guided, hands-on experience in installing servers and clients that support IIIF, and utilizing the advanced functionality that IIIF provides for interactive image-based research, such as annotation.
Introduction to APIs will open with the basics of Python, a scripting language widely used in industry and the academy because of its human readability. We will proceed to the fundamentals of working with Application Programming Interfaces APIsthe most common way to programatically access webbased services and data.
The course will be useful for those interested in understanding programming concepts, developing applications, and working with data. Participants will use DH Box, a cloudbased digital humanities laboratory, for their development environment.
This is a hands-on course. Such data includes racist historical documents, ideologically laden materials, culturally controversial texts, politically charged topics, gendered works, etc.
Aimed at people who work with culturally sensitive datasets, and those who are interested in critical reflection on visualization practice, the course will combine hands-on activities and discussion. Participants will create data visualizations using R and instructor-provided stock code, and then interrogate their visualizations, identifying the extent and severity of the ethical pitfalls they inevitably contain.
By the end of the week, participants will have produced several visualizations and prepared a position statement on ethical visualization appropriate for their own cultural and disciplinary contexts. No previous knowledge in coding, R, or visualizations is required. Participants are welcome to bring their own treacherous data, or they may use sample projects provided by the instructors.
If you are unsure as to whether your data will work in this class, please feel welcome to contact the instructors in advance.
We will cover the reasons for publishing open data, how we can create open data, and how we can work with open data.To view specific requirements and coursework information, visit the current Academic Catalog: Program Requirements Note: This information is current for the academic year; however, all stated academic information is subject to change.

Specializations and courses in the arts and humanities (including fine arts, history, and philosophy) explore the historical context of creative works and teach you to review source material critically, draw connections between diverse ideas, and evaluate evidence and arguments.
Humanities are academic disciplines that study aspects of human society and culture. In the renaissance, the term contrasted with divinity and referred to what is now called classics, the main area of secular study in universities at the time.
Today, the humanities are more frequently contrasted with natural, and sometimes social, sciences as. The Albert & Pirkko Karvonen Environmental Science or Biology Bursary is intended to assist program or non-program (unclassified) students with the costs associated with tuition fees.
