The aim of this course is for the student to learn about digital humanities as a field and how it impacts the ways we conduct academic practices in the humanities. Approaches to defining digital humanities are discussed, and implications for research practices in specific humanities disciplines are addressed. The course gives an overview of the impact that digitization has on academic practices, as well as effects on increased collaboration across disciplinary boundaries and across the cultural heritage sector and related organizations. Selected digital methodologies are reviewed and critically discussed, including digital data collection and related digital research infrastructures.
Distance – study where you are
Perhaps you would like to study in the Swedish mountains, in a big city, or at home close to family? Many of our programmes and courses are offered in distance format.
Studying at a distance can be done in different ways, either entirely without physical gatherings or with only a few gatherings on campus or at one of our learning centres. The common denominator is that a large part of your studies takes place online. You communicate with the teacher and other students with the help of a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures and online meetings.
The benefit of distance studies is the flexibility, something that is valuable if you want to be free to decide when and where you want to study. Some compulsory elements on you course or programme may take place during office hours, even though they are online.
