X81: Citizen Science and the Digital Humanities in Splash Spring 2021 (Apr. 17 - 18, 2021)
A comprehensive introduction to citizen science and the digital humanities. Citizen science is the collection and analysis of data relating to the natural world by members of the general public. This allows folks from diverse backgrounds to collaborate with professional scientists! We will learn about how to participate in citizen science projects, and how the methods and digital tools of citizen science can be applied to the humanities (art, literature, history, etc.).

S15: Bioethics and Human Life in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 27, 2019)
A broad exploration of ethical issues related to medical and biological research, along with their historical contexts and potential future solutions. There will be a particular emphasis on topics that relate to human health. However, this is not a course geared exclusively toward those interested in medicine. It aims to introduce a larger audience to the nuances of some challenging bio-ethical issues, and provide a space that facilitates productive discussion.
