Working Groups

Digital Humanities Writing Group

The Digital Humanities Writing Group is comprised of graduate students and faculty in the humanities who are working on writing projects related to their digital scholarship, whether the goal is publication in a discipline-specific venue or one that focuses primarily on digital work.

Digital Dissertations Initiative

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.

Sustainability and Digital Humanities

This working group explores the emerging field of EcoDH, using three notions of sustainability to guide our discussions: ecological sustainability, socio-economic sustainability, and the sustainability of scholarship.

Debates in the Digital Humanities Reading Group

This working group reads and discusses selected chapters from Debates in the Digital Humanities 2016, in order to engage current questions in digital humanities, including (but not limited to) its scope and its relation to academic disciplines.
