Pratt SILS announces new program concentration in digital humanities

Coordinated by Pratt SILS Assistant Professor Chris Alen Sula, the DH concentration (within the MS LIS degree) addresses the range of issues involved in digital humanities, from digitizing primary sources and creating content systems to analyzing data and exploring new platforms for research and publication. By the end of the concentration, students are able bring skills in digitization, preservation, metadata, analysis, and technology into academic settings to support faculty and institutional teaching and research. They are also prepared to serve as thought leaders at cultural heritage institutions in the area of digital scholarship and public programming.
