MA Specialization in Digital Humanities
Gives students the opportunity to explore ways in which digital technologies are changing how we understand art, film, music, literature and popular culture; how we develop new
forms of collective memory; and how we create global communities and intercultural dialogue.
Students will learn:
- to think critically by undertaking original research involving the latest theories, methods and technologies
- the value of collaborating with other students and faculty across Carleton and with community partners.
Students tackle research questions, such as:
- How are digital publishing, social media and surveillance altering personal and communal identities?
- Can 3D modelling produce new understandings of ancient texts?
- How do video games differ from other forms of popular culture?
- Can scholarship in the humanities and social sciences reach new audiences through mobile networks and devices?
Students will work closely with public- and private-sector partners who rely heavily on
digital media, including partners in the media production, entertainment, library and archives, museum, digital gaming, travel and tourism, advertising and technical writing sectors.
