ENGLISH 203: Michel Foucault

This course examines the middle period of the work of the philosopher, historian, and social theorist Michel Foucault. We will study Foucault¿s portrayal of the workings of power in modern societies, on topics of rule, reform, governance, population, psychology, and identity. The course will examine four major works tracing changes in Western Europe from roughly 1680 to 1980: The History of Sexuality, Vol. 1; Discipline and Punish; Security, Territory, Population; and The Birth of Biopolitics. The course considers Foucault as a historian and theorist, not as a literary critic. Some notice will be taken of the implications of his theories for literature, arts, and media, and for the daily life and self-conception of any individual in the late modern United States.

ENGLISH 204: Digital Humanities Across Borders (COMPLIT 204A, DLCL 204)

What if you could take a handwritten manuscript, or a pile of 100 books, and map all the locations that are referenced, or see which characters interact with one another, or how different translators adapted the same novel -- without reading through each text to manually compile those lists? Digital humanities tools and methods make it possible, but most tools and tutorials assume the texts are in English. If you work with text (literature, historical documents, fanfic, tweets, or any other textual material) in languages other than English, DLCL 204 is for you. In 1:1 consultation with the instructor, you'll chart your own path based on the language you're working with, the format of the text, and what questions you'd like to try to answer. No previous programming or other technical experience is required, just a reading knowledge of a language other than English (modern or historical). We'll cover the whole process of using digital tools, from start to finish: text acquisition, text more »

No previous programming or other technical experience is required, just a reading knowledge of a language other than English (modern or historical). We'll cover the whole process of using digital tools, from start to finish: text acquisition, text enrichment, and analysis/visualization, all of which have applications in a wide range of job contexts within and beyond academia. You'll also have the chance to hear from scholars who are doing digital humanities work in non-English languages, about their experience working across the technical and linguistic borders within their discipline, and within the broader DH community. While this course will be online and primarily asynchronous, there will be opportunities for students to meet synchronously throughout the quarter in language- and tool-based affinity groups.
