The Wormand the Book: Digital Humanities Reading, Building,and Learning in the Undergraduate Curriculum
Abstract: An intensely research project-oriented field in its beginnings, digital humanities is increasingly entering undergraduate and graduate curriculums across North America. Using the University of Toronto’s new Digital Humanities Minor as a case study, this paper discusses the challenges–intellectual, institutional, pedagogical–of developing and teaching a sustainable Digital Humanities program in the undergraduate curriculum.
