This site hosts Elisa Beshero-Bondar’s past courses in coding for the Digital Humanities taught at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg through the Spring 2020 semester. Either course could fulfill a core requirement for the Digital Studies Certificate at Pitt-Greensburg. The other could serve as an elective for the certificate, offering students an option to pursue a concentration in coding within the certificate. The courses were designed to be taken in any order. (Pursuing the second course allowed students a review of fundamentals learned in the first one, but offered experience with a different set of processing tools for humanities research).

Course Projects

In alternating semesters, the two coding courses will either involve students contributing to faculty-led research projects or building their own proposed research projects. All projects investigate a research question using digital methods.
