Digital Dissertations Initiative
Meets Alternate Thursdays, 1-2 pm, in the Digital Humanities Center, 344 Buttrick Hall.
As research and communication practices associated with digital humanities gain acceptance within the academy, an increasing number of graduate students express interest in creating multimodal chapters or companions to their “traditional” humanities dissertations. This working group will investigate experiments with multimodal dissertations at other universities and existing attitudes at Vanderbilt concerning digital scholarly communication and the humanities dissertation. The group will identify cultural and technological factors that shape the possibility for successful digital dissertation components, and create a report and recommendations for Vanderbilt based on these findings and on the experiences and perspectives of current graduate students with an interest in digital humanities.
