Coding for Humanists
The Coding for Humanists series aims to provide practical, hands-on instruction around the tools and analytical techniques that underpin digital humanities praxis. No prior technical knowledge is assumed, and examples and case studies are chosen with an eye towards relevance for humanities scholars, librarians, archivists, and others who work with historical and modern socio-cultural artifacts.
