Digital Tools for the Humanities - LNGS2628

Year - 2018

New technologies are developing at a rapid pace and have enabled significant breakthroughs in collecting, analysing and visualising the textual data that are at the heart of many subjects. This interdisciplinary unit will teach students how to use computer and digital tools for the collection or analysis of spoken/written discourse, for example social media, literature, fieldwork data, corporate communication, foreign language, interviews, news discourse and many more. The emphasis is on easy-to-use tools and no prior technical expertise is required.
