The digital humanities explore enduring questions about human culture by using digital tools creatively and critically to gather, mine, organize, visualize and disseminate information. This discipline encompasses all areas in the arts and humanities. Projects can include mining of large-scale historical census data, exploring work on computational linguistics and computer-assisted language learning, or mapping patterns of sound and image in contemporary music videos or theatrical performances. One of the fundamental premises of digital humanities is that culture and technology are interactive and interdependent. By using and developing digital tools and applying them to information, we can enhance our knowledge and understanding of human culture and technology.

This program is offered in English and in French.
