Description

Together, a professor of Religious Studies and a librarian worked to revamp an existing course to incorporate a focus on digital humanities. The class was fully team-taught in fall 2018, and incorporated both disciplinary and digital scholarship expertise: students learned information and digital literacy skills in "Tech Labs" throughout the semester and worked in teams on cross-cultural comparative research projects for a digital bestiary, while learning about supernatural beings from around the world and comparative religious theory. This session will focus on the collaborative model and structure of the course and its central project, and will feature students who took the course sharing their experiences with collaboration and digital humanities work.
