In 2015-16 we will pilot a Digital Humanities 25-credit minor subject study block at the Faculty of Arts for those University of Helsinki students who have completed their bachelor’s degree.
Also computer science students are encouraged to participate (with some carrots hidden in the agenda). If you are a CS student outside HY (f.e. Aalto) and would like to participate, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
New courses might be added later to Weboodi (especially Spring 2016).
NB! Some courses (especially method courses) beside those listed in Weboodi at the moment can also be included to the study block based on case by case evaluation of the suitability of the suggested course.
In case you have any questions, ask away or contact through email: email@example.com
Why? To enhance multidisciplinary working culture in the field of digital humanities, bringing together people from different backgrounds.
How? Group work on four different data sets within five days peppered by different introductions to digital humanities and lightning talks. For description of data sets and outline of the schedule, click here.
Some lessons to be learned from the hackathon: cultural change takes time, multidisciplinary work is hard but rewarding, digital humanities will not save the planet & the world and the digital cannot do without the humanities.
