Overview: In the 1950s, C.P. Snow described the emergence of two cultures, science/technology and the humanities, and he lamented the “polarization” between them as “sheer loss to us all” (12). Although the distinction described by Snow has in many ways persisted to the present day, humanities scholars across the globe have begun finding innovative ways to cross the cultural barriers and to apply computing technologies to traditional humanities inquiry.*
In this course we’ll explore some of the new ways humanists are bridging the cultural divide by applying technologically-driven methods within the humanities.
