Davis Digital Pedagogy Zoom Session: (Some Ideas About) How to Teach Digital Humanities—Ryan Cordell

Friday, September 21, 2018 , 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Davis Digital Pedagogy Zoom Session

(Some Ideas About) How to Teach Digital Humanities

Ryan Cordell, English and NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks, Northeastern University

Beginning from his 2016 essay, “How Not to Teach Digital Humanities,” Cordell will lead a wide-ranging conversation about effective methods for integrating computational methods into humanities courses. Since writing that essay, Cordell has continued developing a range of DH-infused courses at Northeastern University, including a first-year seminar, undergraduate classes in American literature and book history, as well as graduate courses in digital humanities and text analysis. Cordell will draw on his experiences in these classes to illustrate, reflect on, and refine the recommendations he made in “How Not to Teach.” In particular, Cordell will discuss aligning DH instruction with distinct learning outcomes, scaffolding DH skill development, and fostering critical engagement with computational tools. Participants are encouraged to bring specific case studies and questions from their own classes for discussion. Join us online for our video conference at Zoom (be sure to download the Zoom application from that link; for assistance with Zoom contact the ITS/Media Services HelpDesk).

Ryan Cordell is Associate Professor of English at Northeastern University and a Core Founding Faculty Member in the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks. His scholarship seeks to illuminate how technologies of production, reception, and remediation shape the meanings of texts within communities. Cordell primarily studies circulation and reprinting in nineteenth-century American newspapers, but his interests extend to the influence of computation and digitization on contemporary reading, writing, and research. Cordell collaborates with colleagues in English, History, and Computer Science on the NEH- and ACLS-funded Viral Texts project, which is using robust data mining tools to discover borrowed texts across large-scale archives of nineteenth-century periodicals. Cordell is also a primary investigator in the Digging Into Data project Oceanic Exchanges, a six-nation effort examining patterns of information flow across national and linguistic boundaries in nineteenth century newspapers. Cordell is also a Senior Fellow in the Andrew W. Mellon Society of Critical Bibliography at the Rare Book School and serves on the Executive Committee of the MLA’s Forum on Bibliography and Scholarly Editing.
