Aims & Objectives

This module will consist of 24 hours of lectures and 12 hours of labs. It will adopt a blended learning approach and will include lectures, group discussions, and hands-on experimentation with Digital Humanities tools and methods. On the completion of this module, students should be able to:

• digitise analog artefacts to archival standards

• understand the nature of digitised photographs, specifically how they differ from their physical counterparts

• understand photographic contexts (social, cultural, political) and how they may be communicated in the digital space

• engage with the issues of building resources of non-textual artefacts in the digital space

• attribute standardised metadata for visual objects and create digital photographic artefacts for the purposes of preservation

• build an online repository of photographic resources

• computationally inspect and analyse digitised photographs to extract image features
