It had occurred to her early that in her position--that of a young person spending, in framed and wired confinement, the life of a guinea-pig or a magpie--she should know a great many persons without their recognising the acquaintance. That made it an emotion the more lively--though singularly rare and always, even then, with opportunity still very much smothered--to see any one come in whom she knew outside, as she called it, any one who could add anything to the meanness of her function. Her function was to sit there with two young men--the other telegraphist and the counter-clerk; to mind the "sounder," which was always going, to dole out stamps and postal-orders, weigh letters, answer stupid questions, give difficult change and, more than anything else, count words as numberless as the sands of the sea, the words of the telegrams thrust, from morning to night, through the gap left in the high lattice, across the encumbered shelf that her forearm ached with rubbing.

Intro to Digital Methods in the Humanities

This modular curriculum that will prepare first-year graduate students with the basic computational literacy necessary for research in the humanities today. Digital technologies have become part of the fabric of our daily research activities, and it is the goal of these workshops to impart a criticality and an awareness of the tools that graduate students will be using every day. In addition, the curriculum is designed to introduce ideas that will scale with students' field-specific research interests as they progress through their PhD programs. By the end of the semester, students will have gained:

  • an introduction to the standard tools in digital humanities research (TOOLS)
  • a conceptual fluency in methodological exchange across the disciplines (METHODS)
  • a basic familiarity with the history of textual interpretation from philology to data mining (HISTORY)

Each tutorial will be guided by the assumption that new res
