Interdisciplinary Studies 230: Thinking Digitally


Thinking Digitally: Data & Culture (IDSC 230) was designed to interrogate the information, machines, and systems that structure our lives. Using the Whitman Campus and the Walla Walla community as a source of materials and a laboratory, students worked collaboratively to design critical research questions that could be answered using digital tools. Students investigated practical, ethical, intellectual, creative, and critical interactions between the digital and non-digital worlds through text manipulation, data visualization, and storytelling. The class explored systems of knowledge, used tools to structure and work with many kinds of data, and engaged with debates about digital research methodologies. A team of faculty and staff with expertise in a variety of fields designed the course, which was taught in the Spring of 2017.
