Book History and Digital Humanities, Undergraduate Minor

About the Book History and Digital Humanities Undergraduate Minor Program

The minor in book history and digital humanities allows students to study oral, written, and printed texts and visual and digital media in varied social, economic, and political contexts. Students explore book history and digital humanities on local, national and global scales, considering the various actors in textual creation, production, circulation, and reception, whether that text is a manuscript, book, graphic novel, film, digital media, etc. Courses in the minor cover a wide array of topics, including the creation of medieval manuscripts, the transition from oral to scribal to print texts, the nineteenth-century industrialization of print, the history of film, and the history of the internet and digital books, as well as letterpress print making and web design.

The minor consists of 18 hours of coursework, at least 3 hours of which come from ENGL 3350 . Electives may be chosen from the list below; students should consult with the director concerning course selection and progress toward the minor.
