The Floating City: Public Life in Venice through the Ages, a First Year Seminar taught in the History Department, was in part designed to foster digital literacy, a necessary skill in an increasingly electronic age: assessing the strengths and weaknesses of various software, shaping projects and communication to the digital form, and developing a set of transferrable practices for learning about new technologies. Students were asked to write about and map a Venetian ritual event and to visualize the journey of a particular traveler to Venice, as well as post reflective essays and photos on our Masking and Movement workshop on the course exhibit space.
Our goalThe DH Community is a program of Wake Forest's Humanities Institute. We are faculty from across campus interested in investigating the emergence of digital humanities as a field of study, and its relevance and usefulness as a research and teaching tool in the humanities.
