HY200/FG206/SO290: Digital History Collaborative Project
Bryant T. Ragan and Jennifer Golightly | Spring 2018

In this course, students collaborated to learn how to construct a digital liberal arts (DLA) project. By exploring the Policing Male Homosexuality project in progress, they were able to think systematically about how to pose research questions, evaluate which digital tools would help them best answer it, and design an interactive webpage to publish their findings.

GS214: Workshop in the Digital Liberal Arts
Bryant T. Ragan and Jennifer Golightly | Spring 2018

This adjunct course was designed for students to work individually or in groups on a digital research project. The faculty used the Policing Male Homosexuality project as a class “sandbox,” allowing students to think about the relationship between research questions, digital tools, and websites as a process of producing knowledge. Under the supervision of faculty, IT specialists and librarians, students researched a focused topic grounded in their major or another field in which they had expertise and learned how digital technology can best be used in this scholarly endeavor. The course met two times per week over the course of two blocks, two and a half hours each meeting.
