Strolling Through the Digital Humanities

Abstract

Drawing on my experience co-teaching a course titled The Digital Flâneur, I explore how technologies in the digital humanities both represent and obscure concrete subjects of inquiry. If computational thinking is, in part, about fostering the appropriate kinds of abstraction, how do digital representations impact the lived realities of the people, places, and things that we study?
