Scholar-driven open-access platform that publishes peer-reviewed Victorian material and supports the teaching of literature asynchronously. It is maintained and supported by NAVSA, BAVSA, AVSA and a number of independent institutions. Although all peer-reviewed material is open access, we charge a modest amount for use of our tools in the classroom.
The Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate
Offered in partnership between the School of Information Studies and School of Interdisciplinary Studies. It offers graduate students from any discipline the opportunity to pursue a certification in DH. Students will complete 12 credits, including ILS 630: DH Foundations, a capstone experience, and two elective seminars in computational methods. Students will also have the opportunity to use the DH Studio space to complete their capstones and will give a public presentation on their research projects.

Humanitarian Mapping Activities Support Critical Data Literacy Instruction
This research project illustrates how humanitarian mapping applications, such as OpenStreetMap, can be used in co-curricular and extracurricular learning environments to support critical data literacy instruction and to encourage learners to consider and apply principles of social justice to their work (i.e. social justice in the built environment and social justice in community design).
ILS 595: Automation of Systematic Review Methods
A 3-credit course that teaches students to systematically search for literature related to a specific research question. The course emphasizes strategies for reducing publication bias via more inclusive grey literature searches (searching outside of commercial and academic settings), teaches students to use text mining tools (Voyant Tools and the programming language R) to inform the selection of search terms, and teaches students to manage citation data with EndNote and Rayyan.
ILS 630 provides a capacious overview of current theories and methods within digital humanities. Students will gain a broad understanding of DH, working with humanities/social sciences data over the course of the semester to build an original project prototype. By the end of the course, students will be able to contextualize DH and apply it to their own research and teaching. This course is required for the Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate.
LING 298 Forensic Linguistics
A course that allows undergraduate linguistics students the opportunity to explore digital texts, corpora, audio, and video recordings to understand better how language is used and analyzed in legal contexts to help solve crime. Students use computational methods to answer questions regarding authorship identification and comparison.
A student-and-instructor co-created community resource. The map has 3 routes with 6 stops each, each stop related to Purdue's role in space exploration. The co-creation and ongoing development enables students to acquire training and practice on digital tools, such as Adobe Illustrator for the Side A map and route-lines, and audience-appropriate communications, with the Side B descriptions.
