Course summary

English with Digital Humanities BA (Hons) is designed for students who wish to combine elements of a traditional English degree with the acquisition of new digital skills.Our BA (Hons) English with Digital Humanities degree introduces the new and rapidly evolving field of digital humanities, and focuses, in particular, on the significance of the digital revolution for the reading of literary texts. It will equip you with skills in textual interpretation and analysis as well as applied digital knowledge in web design and blogging, desktop publishing, text encoding, data visualisation and digital editing.The English with Digital Humanities degree will introduce you to key literary concepts and periods in your first year, through a range of carefully designed modules introducing the fundamentals of poetic metre and poetic form, the study of language, and narrative forms and fictions. In addition, the ‘How to Do Things with Digital Texts’ module will explore the interpretive possibilities opened up by the shift from print to digital literary forms. Modules on offer in the second year include core options surveying the major authors and periods in literary history, and ‘From Fan Fiction to YouTube: Navigating the Digital Literary Sphere’, which explores the ways in which literary culture has changed in response to the digital revolution. The knowledge and skills acquired through these modules will prepare you for the Digital Humanities dissertation, which is a core element of your third year. The work you do here will be complemented by the ‘Building Digital Editions’ module, which introduces theories of online editing and offers you the opportunity to edit your own text for publication online.
