CMLT398M: Special Topics in Comparative Studies; Digital Publishing with Minimal Computing: Humanities at a Global Scale
In this Global Classrooms course, students of the University of Maryland and Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, will come together to learn how to create and assess websites from a critical and humanities-focused perspective.
Specifically, the course will introduce "minimal computing" approaches, which privilege the use of open technologies, ownership of data and code, reduction in computing infrastructure and, consequently, environmental impact. The course is structured around a group project with students from both universities. You will collaborate virtually to create a multilingual (Spanish and English) digital edition of a colonial era text, while learning about Digital Humanities approaches to literary studies, digital publishing, history, and postcolonial studies. Coding experience and knowledge of the Spanish language are *not* required. Teaching and collaboration will be conducted in English, however, in the spirit of fostering a multilingual approach, we will not discourage the use of Spanish among students and instructors; mutual respect and cooperation are paramount to the success of your course project.
