This course introduces students to concepts, debates, tools and methods related to the application of digital technologies to humanities research and creative (especially literary) practice. The programme is co-taught by staff from English, Information Technology, Media Studies and other units, including the James Hardiman Library. It will focus on the use of digital tools for textmining and data visualisation, and on the creation and use of digital editions, digital archives and born-digital literature. It will also examine wider cultural questions about the impact of technologies on society. For some graduates the programme may provide a stepping stone to further research, such as a PhD; for others it may provide a skill-set for digital creative practice, or employment in areas of cultural heritage, IT, education, media and more.
