Incorporating a Digital Research Assignment into your Humanities and Social Sciences Course

Friday, November 26, 2021 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm
Location: Online
Event Type: Lecture

26 November, 12:00-13:00hrs Atlantic

Speaker: Dr. Laura Estill, Canada Research Chair in Digital Humanities, St. FX University
Humanities and Social Science research increasingly takes place using digital resources and tools; teaching students to undertake effective research means introducing them to existing digital resources. In this discussion, Dr. Laura Estill shares an assignment that helps students learn how to undertake original research using digital resources. The examples here are taken from Shakespeare studies but the assignment techniques could be used in other humanities and social sciences classes. Digital humanities resources offer a “brave new world” for research and teaching; there is no ready-made map for this ever-changing landscape.
