DH Graduate Studio Course (HUM6836)

The new Digital Humanities Graduate Studio course (HUM6836) is the capstone of UF’s new Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate. This is a fully interdisciplinary graduate certificate drawing on courses taught within multiple departments and colleges across the university and open to any student enrolled in a Masters or PhD program.

Designed for advanced graduate students who have completed substantial coursework in the emerging field of digital humanities, who are prepared to be self-directed in their studio practice, and who seek opportunities to work with digital humanists from other disciplines on individual and jointly-authored projects, the studio offers a unique opportunity to apply student research and teaching interests in the emerging field of digital humanities.

The studio is team-taught by a faculty member from a UF humanities department in CLAS and a librarian from the George A. Smathers Libraries. Like all studio courses HUM 6836 is fundamentally a creative community wherein students and faculty collaborate for what John Dewey called experiential learning, and what contemporary scholars call learning-in-action. For spring 2018, the course faculty are Whitney Sanford, Professor of Religion, and Hélène Huet, European Studies Librarian. Class sessions and studio time will take place in the Scott Nygren Scholars Studio, located in Library West. Class sessions may also include excursions to various resource centers on campus in support and as part of the making/creating process.

Students will be encouraged to pursue their individual interests for their digital humanities projects. In addition to a few informal presentations and writing assignments, students will produce a Digital Portfolio comprised of four elements: 1) scholarly bio and CV, 2) 2-3 digital humanities projects, 3) discussion of the purpose of digital humanities and the specific contribution the student’s projects make to either scholarship or pedagogy (in his/her own field of study as well as the digital humanities writ large if appropriate), and 4) either a traditional research project (thesis, dissertation chapter, scholarly article, exhibit, or scholarly presentation) or a course syllabus that relates to the student’s digital projects.

The Digital Studio is a capstone course. Before signing up for this course, students must have taken the required Digital Breadth and Digital Depth seminars; see listing of Digital Breadth and Digital Depth seminars.

In spring 2018, the DH Graduate Studio Course meets every Wednesday from 8.30 to 11.30 am, periods 2-4.
