COMP 131 - Computing for Poets


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 story, a trilogy, an anthology or corpus. This course teaches computer programming as a vehicle to explore the formal symbol systems currently used to define our digital libraries of text. Programming facilitates top-down thinking and practice with real-world problem-solving skills such as problem decomposition and writing algorithms.
