UNDERGRADUATE COURSES

LLCU 212 - Understanding Dig&Social Media (3 credits)

Lectures will explore a range of topics related to technologies of contemporary digital and social media, with particular attention to understanding technical, historical, ethical and legal issues. Tutorials will help students to express themselves effectively with digital media, and especially on the web (HTML, images, audio, video).

LLCU 255 - Intro to Literary Text Mining (3 credits)

How might thinking about literature as data change our understanding of foundational categories like author, text, work, narrative, plot, character or even language? In order to address these questions, this course will introduce you to the basic concepts and practices of text mining (vector space models, distributional semantics, sentiment analysis, topic modeling, and social network analysis) and the ways in which they have been applied to the study of literature. Weekly assignments will introduce you to the R software environment and will culminate in a final project of your own choosing. No prior programming experience is required.

LLCU 311 - Digital Studies/Citizenry (3 credits)

This course will provide a conceptual and practical understanding of how to leverage technologies in a range of common activities such as searching, social networking, presenting, and creating web content. The emphasis will be on using and understanding digital technologies in effective and ethical ways in our digital society.

LLCU 498 - Digital Project (3 credits)

Students will pursue digital projects through group instruction and individual supervision. Emphasis will be placed on effective project planning, appropriate research, theoretical framing, and effective communication. Students will be expected to present their work at an open symposium event at the end of term.
