The nascent field of digital humanities is bringing the computational power of data analytics to the human world of history and literature. And with new tools, even high school students can perform complex analyses with simple, single line commands. In short, coding doesn’t look much like coding any more. This Future20 describes a digital humanities course piloted last year and includes live coding to demonstrate how easily students can apply computational principles to history and literature.
