Dissertating in the Digital Age, continued

A consortium of graduate programs has announced the creation of the Praxis Network. All programs are "engaged in rethinking pedagogy and campus partnerships in relation to the digital." One promises to equip knowledge workers for faculty positions "at a moment when new questions can be asked and new systems built." Another intends to produce "thought leaders for the future of the field." And a third hopes to "provide an arena" in which students "can learn about new digital scholarship." While a little vague at present, the laudable point of all this is to nudge the occasional humanist from a "lone wolf" model of monograph production to a collaborative research model of pooled resources (financial and intellectual) and the production of larger projects that may outlive and outgrow their creators.
