The field of digital humanities is still hard-to-define, and one open to many interpretations and ideas but also criticism. The term made its first appearance in A Companion to Digital Humanities in 2004, and it has become very popular ever since. However, although it is more and more common to see new courses on digital humanities, the application and delivery of this new area in Italian courses on culture, history and literature is rather limited. This panel seeks to fill this gap by seeking papers that explore different methodologies of traditional teaching with the use of digital resources in courses that also promote student acquisition of technology literacy and collaborative projects. The panel is also open to papers that explore reflections and/or scholarship on this new way of teaching traditional disciplines like literature and this new field of inquiry. More and more universities are also allowing faculty and students to use domains of one’s own, for various projects, so papers on their creative use in such courses are welcome. The aim of the panel will be to share projects, ideas, reflections, successes and challenges on what works or does not in the classroom and ways to address problems and improve student and faculty collaboration.

The panel welcomes papers on Italian culture, history, or literature courses, taught in Italian or in English, that use different digital resources and tools as teaching methodologies or the creative use of domains of one’s own. Scholarship and/or reflections on the field of digital humanities applied to Italian are also welcome. Papers in Italian or in English.
