Evalutaion of our DH project proposals: an idea

From my point of view, there is one specific factor we should keep in strong […]

This experiment is based -as […]

My week as editor for Digital Humanities Now

Being an editor for Digital Humanities Now has been very good, for me, to experience with digital tools and digital editing. Moreover, working on it during the Election Week – and its results – has been also a good way to forget (or, at least, try to forget) what has just happened (a lot of […]

Short is better? Analyzing the ‘participate reception’ of a text

The data set I chose for my project is a collection of tweets, produced during Summer 2015 for #LabExpo, an experiment on Twitter proposed by the Italian start-up TwLetteratura connected to Expo Milano 2015.

Humanities and space

What I found relevant, in last weeks reading for our classes, is the relation established between space and humanities. At a first sight, indeed, and also basing my thoughts on what I previously learned and how I previously studied humanities, I was sure that space does not deal with humanities. I did not see a […]

Workshop: Databases Part I (Oct 4)

On October 4th, with a lot of the students attending our DH praxis seminar (and, of course, other people not attending it), I participated to the workshop “Databases Part I”, with the two digital fellows Ian Phillips and Tahir Butt. The workshop was nice and very useful: Ian and Tahir were very nice and always available to […]

A new definition of roles

During last weeks, I was reading Alan Liu’s “From Reading to Social Computing” as part of the requirement of our class and I was struck by a passage in his essay that I found very interesting to define one of the most important change the DH environment is producing into the literature field.

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at cuny.is/dps17.
