Cursusdoelen
After completion of this course, the student:
A) has gained a basic understanding of how mixed-methods (qualitative and qualitative) data analysis tools and data/network visualization software function;
B) has developed skills to put into dialogue digital humanities tools and perspectives of gender and critical race and sexuality studies;
C) is able to decode and assess visualizations or analyses of data;
D) can present alternative readings or ways of using visualizations or analyses of data.
Inhoud
In this course, digital humanities – as a field that encompasses a humanities-informed approach that entails studying digital media and technology, engaging with processes of digital media production, practice and analysis – is approached through its entanglements with questions of subjectivity, identity, communities, knowledge, power, discourse, and cultural norms. These issues are addressed in a hands-on engagement with the digital tools developed within what has been named the ‘computational turn’ in the humanities: qualitative and qualitative data analysis tools, network analyses and data visualization online platforms, and data management and textual analysis software.
The module specifically addresses how, in the study of cultural-social-geo-political phenomena (e.g., gender inequalities, migrant and diasporic communities, online activism, minorities’ access to social services, distribution of human rights, transnational knowledge exchanges, development NGOs’ enterprises), the use of big data, the visualization of complex information, and the analysis of large databases are increasingly becoming (1) a source of concern and (2) powerful tools to access and affect knowledges on a global scale.

Career orientation:
The course offers the possibility to engage with cutting-edge scholarship in the digital humanities, which is helpful for shaping their future research profile on the academic job market and beyond.

Only open to students enrolled in the RMA Gender Studies and GEMMA. Other students should contact the course coordinator.
