INTRODUCING METADATA IN THE TEACHING OF LITERATURE: A QUALITATIVE APPROACH TO PROMOTE DIGITAL HUMANITIES

The huge influx of data made available by digital human expression, offer the obvious prospect of quantitative analysis that is valuable for a multiple array of disciplines. However, in the study and research of humanities, data is employed in the field of digital humanities: a field that is still emerging with more uncertainly than solid threshold of analysis or use. Scholars in the field are still attempting to discuss the very definition of digital humanities and the implications on both teaching, learning and research. Thus, the challenge becomes how to employ an elusive concept void of a standard definition or framework of administration into our classrooms? The answer so far comes as substantial interdisciplinary projects that are currently attracting both academic interest and funding. This study claims that the key to engaging students enrolled in the study of humanities in experimenting with digital realms is to adopt a qualitative approach creating metadata analyses prospects. This is achieved through creating connections between various forms of literary expression within a stream of seemingly separate timelines of the development of Literature. The scope encompasses ancient literary themes and motifs as they evolve through a "remedial" model of analysis in both the literary sense of the term and the computational one. In doing so, the researchers seek to identify the potentials of web-based data in the field of humanities, while probing the biggest opportunities and the biggest obstacles. Our hope is to instigate interest in the use of web-based data in the field of humanities and motivate future research involving metadata constructions.
