Printer-friendly version

In Fall 2012, Duke will be starting a new PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge, residing in the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Smith Warehouse and partnering with many existing programs on campus.  For more information, go to:  http://fhi.duke.edu/opportunities/phd-lab-scholars-2012-13

Description

Co-directed by Professors David Bell and Cathy Davidson, the Lab will be event-based in its first year. Our events will be shared with and across a variety of programs already on the Duke campus and in the Triangle, as a way of connecting the most innovative new research and teaching technologies, methods, practices, and theories we have available. We will also be sponsoring a number of related workshops, symposia, and learn-by-doing initiatives designed to help doctoral students use new methods in their research, develop new teaching methods, and also face the job market with the most cutting-edge theories and practices surrounding digital forms of learning, teaching, online instruction, and collaborative online publishing and research. The PhD Lab will cover everything from practical professional advice (such as resume building and cover-letter writing around one’s online publications and multimedia productions) to learning new skills to making a www.hastac.org group where students in the lab can share ideas, resources, and other conversation among themselves and with the vibrant HASTAC Scholars community (over 500 past and present students, 80% graduate, and over 9500 interested learning and research interdisciplinary professionals around the world).

Teaching Digital Humanties: Digital methods elective: PhD Coursework Subject

I have started teaching in a PhD coursework subject here at the University of Melbourne; the first year that this type of subject have been offered in PhD research. And as part of this, we have started teaching our very first Digital Humanities subject in the faculty; a lot of fun and somewhat experimental.  There are 5 of us teaching it (and about 20 PhD students); and all the instructors have many years teaching, research, and computing experience (and ways of understanding and applying computing to teaching and research problems).  The aims of the course is as follows (and we have put together our syllabus from a number of excellent sources and thanks to University of Victoria in Canada and especially Brett Hirsch of UWA for blazing a path for us). It is only a 5 week course of 2 house sessions, so barely getting our feet wet in such a large and vibrant field (and sorry some of the links may not work as you will need particular University log-in credentials to access them).
