Digital Graduate Scholars Group

 

Digital Graduate Scholars Group

It has been a couple of years in the making, but we've finally arrived…. the Digital Graduate Scholars Group!! As a cohort of PhD students, we are primarily concerned with providing a safe and non-judgmental space to discuss our experiences with and/or questions about digital methodologies. Although we come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines (Art History, Composition and Rhetoric, Information Science, and beyond), we share the essential desire to share and interrogate digital methodologies and the discourse surrounding them.

Activities: We propose to critique, or “workshop,” our own digital projects, analyze projects published by others, review relevant blog postings and other “light” readings of interest, and to provide a forum for sharing events (both in person, and through our collaborative blog). We also invite each other and scholars from outside our group to lead workshops or provide mini tutorials about different tools of interest. Our primary concern is that the work we do actually relate to the interest of group members and reflect and respond to the needs of our community.

Does this sound like something that you, as a PhD student, would like to learn more about? If so, either email me at aoq1@pitt.edu or Chelsea Gunn at cmg100@pitt.edu.

Our next meeting is this Friday, March 25th at 10 am in the Visual Media Workshop at Frick Fine Arts.
