Teaching Together (English-CS team teaching)
Students "connect" a computer science course with one of two English courses: Anglo-Saxon Literature or Tolkien. Read more about our English-Computer Science connection and check out some of the course materials in the "Computing for Poets" course.
The use of computers to manage the storage and retrieval of written texts creates new opportunities for scholars of ancient and other written works. Recent advances in computer software, hypertext, and database methodologies have made it possible to ask novel questions about a poem, a story, a trilogy, or an entire corpus. Watch our videos explaining how our group has been applying our new online tools to analyze texts.
