Topic and Guest Instructor Edit
The 2009 summer seminar at SMU-in-Taos will focus on digital humanities and will cover such topics as electronic editing and archives, ebooks and the future of reading, new media, Web 2.0, born-digital documents, virtual worlds and games, and the relation of digital humanities to the Literary Profession. The seminar will be taught by guest instructor, Prof. Matthew Kirschenbaum, of the University of Maryland. Kirschenbaum anticipates some hands-on work, but he conceives of the week's study primarily as a non-technical, discussion-oriented introduction to the major issues and ideas at work in digital humanities.
