Welcome to Digital Humanities!

Welcome to Digital Humanities, one of the courses being taught in the Comparative Humanities program this semester!

Over the course of the semester we will be working with manuscript materials from the pre-Revolutionary period of North America that reveal some of the complex and unexpected relationships, activities and modes of awareness that Native Americans, European colonists and Moravian missionaries experienced in this place along the Susquehanna River.  We will also be  learning how to make a digital artifact that attempts to answer the research questions that we compose.

I am really looking forward to working with you on this new exciting digital project!
