I personally believe that it’s very important for humanities students to learn coding for various reasons including but not limited to improving their work in the digital world, which will benefit the DH community greatly. In fact, Kirschenbaum states “Computers should not be black boxes but rather understood as engines for creating powerful and persuasive models of the world around us.” If humanities students learn the coding that is fundamental to building and designing web pages, they will be able to digitize their work on the internet and present it in a creative way to the public. This is an effective way to promote work in the humanities, where people will be engaged with the digital work and learn greatly from it.
