Valgfag: Det Nye Testamentes Eksegese: Digitale værktøjer til studiet af den antikke verden

Kursusindhold

This course aims to offer students a broad introduction and critical review of recent trends in the field of Digital Humanities, with particular attention paid to applications relevant for the study of premodern societies (History, Archaeology, Anthropology, Theology, Museum Studies, inter alia). The course will be divided into four broad themes – text, image, place, and object – exposing students to an extensive interdisciplinary range of evidence that will both sit within their fields of study and encourage them to create connections with parallel avenues of scholarship. Following these themes, students will gain familiarity with cutting edge tools, successful research projects, and recent scholarship that have leveraged digital advances to fundamentally reshape our understanding of the past. Simultaneously, the class will engage with more complex topics concerning the ethical and methodological implications of the “Digital Turn” in humanistic studies and its implication for more traditional modes of enquiry. As a whole, this course will prepare students in Theology to both more substantively engage with digital methodologies and their potential for novel research in religious studies, broadly defined.

 

During the course, students will gain hands on experience developing fundamental skills in digital humanistic scholarship, developing a “Digital Toolbox” that will allow them to both undertake digital scholarship in their own studies and to critically engage with ongoing trends and projects relevant to their own research. These tools include, but are not limited to, introductions to GIS, database development, 3D modeling, text encoding, large language models, network modeling, and semantic modeling. Special attention will be paid to ongoing research at UCPH, highlighting the fundamental skills and research objectives of the diverse research programmes taking place throughout the university. The Faculty of Theology, in particular, hosts several compelling case studies for the development and implementation of digital humanities and students will be offered a behind-the-scenes look at these methods in action.

 

Students will be encouraged to develop a project that is somehow related to their own research that either sets the scene for a substantial, digitally driven mode of analysis or one that offers a parallel supportive wing for ongoing scholarship. Students will work directly with the instructor to develop these projects based on the themes and tools introduced during the course and will be assessed based on a small research proposal that situates their project within their field of study more broadly, as well as the successful design, development, and implementation of the project.

Målbeskrivelse

I overensstemmelse med Studieordningen tilstræbes det, at den studerende opnår følgende kvalifikationer:

  • avanceret og specialiseret viden om udvalgte emner,
  • evne til selvstændig, kritisk analyse og diskussion af de spørgsmål, der relaterer sig til de valgte emner,
  • evne til at udvælge og anvende relevant litteratur og
  • evne til både enkel og problembevidst formidling af et fagligt indhold.

 

Disse mål kan realiseres gennem den studerendes aktive deltagelse i kurset. Ud over tilstedeværelsen i mindst 75% af afholdte timer (dokumenteret ved protokol) forventes det af de studerende, at de undervejs bidrager til kursusforløbet med to fremlæggelser med værkanalyser: i.) en analyse af et værks Paulusbillede samt ii.) en drøftelse af den politiske eller filosofiske brug af værket; hver på 15 minutter (svarende til 5 x 2400 anslag). Fremlæggelserne vil typisk danne grundlag for kursets to obligatoriske opgaver. Kurset følger bestemmelser for valgfag i Studieordningen 2020.

En kombination af hjemmearbejde, fælles gennemgang af tekster, korte forelæsninger, diskussion, mundtlig fremlæggelse og skriftlige hjemmeopgaver (med individuel og kollektiv feedback)
