As part of a AHRC research network, I conduct a survey about
Internet/media utopias.

In the time of the Cambridge Analytica scandal and fake news, we
experience a crisis of Internet platforms. Many people think we need
Internet and media utopias today. But how could they look like?
Internet researchers might have good ideas...  I want to invite you to


Answering will take about five minutes. A number of participants with
very visionary ideas will be invited to a workshop in 2020 in London,
where participants will work on co-writing/co-authoring an
Internet/Media Utopias Manifesto.

Kind regards, Christian Fuchs

Dear All,

I'm re-designing the syllabus for a spring semester class, and I'd like to
incorporate DH tools and skills. Particularly, I'm interested in teaching
students how to gather data from APIs and present them on the web. It's a
cultural history class, so I want to teach students enough coding skills to
get projects going, but the main focus is the historical/cultural content.
Class meets three times a week, and I thought of devoting one meeting to
the DH project.

Do you think it's doable?
What would it be the best way to approach this?
Are there any sample syllabi I can look at?

I appreciate all your help!

All the best,
