Inquiries into culture, meaning, and human value meet emerging technologies and cutting-edge skills at Pratt Institute's School of Information

Advanced Projects in Digital Humanities

INFO 659: Advanced Projects in Digital Humanities gives students in the DH Certificate the opportunity to spend an entire semester working on a class-designed group project. The topic, methods, and deliverables are decided by the class and this in-depth experience has lead to projects that have had a long life outside of the class as conference presentations and publications.
