Building a Humanities Minor: Construction and Critique in Digital Technology

A two-year interdisciplinary faculty project to develop a four-course minor that integrates critical humanities analysis with applied computer science.

This proposal develops a new, 4-course minor titled "alt.code," to be housed in Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences. The goal of the project is to develop a humanities curricula that leverages the techno-centric passions of both Humanities and STEM students in our Engineering-Centered Institution, while also providing those students with a critical lens to historicize, contextualize, and deconstruct the roles, values, and histories of digital technology.
