Programming4Humanists at Texas A&M University is offering a spring 2021 course in Python for the Digital Humanities. According to the course description: "Over the past decade, Python has become the lingua franca for performing computational work in the sciences and the humanities. Compared to other procedural programming languages, Python’s learning-curve is low, and due to its popularity, an ever-increasing set of tools exists for using Python to produce, explore, analyze, and present data derived from cultural artifacts. This semester length course seeks to drastically lower the barrier-to-entry for humanities researchers interested in unlocking the power of Python." Learn more about the course, registration, and cost details.
