Digital Humanities in Context


<summary>Digital Critical Analysis of Latin American Culture, Spring 2020, University of Texas at Austin.</summary> <div style="display: block;"> <p>There is a limited presence of Spanish-language cultural production in the digital cultural record and, as a consequence, less opportunities to build and interrogate archives and to also apply computer-aided textual analysis methods to their study. Starting from this premise, this seminar/workshop will focus on theoretical issues related to the presence (or lack thereof) of Latin American and Caribbean texts in the digital record, while at the same time providing students with the experience of building a student-led, collaborative, open-access resource. Through this process we will ask: what type of theory and tools work or are still needed to address issues specific to the wider academic and social contexts of the selected Latin American texts? The course will pair critical analysis with theoretical and hands-on approaches from the digital humanities, including topic modeling, sentiment analysis and mapping. By the end of the course, students will critically analyze the practices and assumptions that have long privileged the cultural products of the northern Anglophone world while developing digital literacy strategies based on knowledge production rather than consumption. </p> </div>
