    Humanities Computing In Text Oriented Studies
    June 10 - 28, 2002
    Ray Siemens, Stefan Sinclair, instuctors

    This course explores the intersection of computing technology and those
    Humanities disciplines that have their origins in textual materials,
    with an emphasis on way in which modes of inquiry dominant in
    text-centred studies are assisted by the computer. Topics will include
    the implications of using computers for humanistic research,
    digitization of texts, text encoding, computer-assisted text-analysis,
    and electronic dissemination and publishing. No prior knowledge of these
    topics is required, though a basic competence with computers is assumed.
    The course is a balance of theory and practice, with approximately half
    the time spent "hands-on" in a computer lab.
