Part of The Digital Scholarship Series

"Comic Books, Analysis, and Digital Scholarship" was a non-coding-requirement JMU Honors course designed to introduce students to the critical study of comic books using open source digital humanities and commercial online tools like IBM Watson. In this session, we will discuss the kinds of assignments, activities, digital tools and literacies the students in our class used to produce their fresh scholarly work about comics. Participants will try their hands at online text mining tools, enterprise artificial intelligence, and using comic book creation software.
