AL 285: Intro to Digital Humanities (Goals)

Digital Humanities seemed interesting to me as I was exploring different minors/specializations to accompany my Professional Writing major. This semester I hope to learn a lot more about DH as well as become active in the DH community. I hope to blog regularly, tweet, and acquire other technological skills, while also being creative and communicating socially. I’m interested in learning more about the rhetoric in writing and technology as well. I like that PW and DH are similar in that they both allow you to actually be creative and write and work effectively and efficiently using different tools, skills and resources. I can’t wait to see how PW and DH accompany each other throughout the semester and the remainder of my undergrad.

  1. As you build your resources page as a part of your online portfolio this semester, you could focus on writing tools and try to collect examples of different ways that people are thinking about writing/genres of writing on different platforms.

  2. Thank you, I will keep that in mind! I’m really looking forward to learning these new concepts, tools, and skills. I think it will be interesting to see how they apply to my career and perhaps everyday life down the road. I can’t wait to see how my portfolio will turn out.
