Final Project – Edit Swap

I wasn’t completely satisfied with my Finnegans Wake data experimentation project, but I can always go back to that another time. I was very curious about the grant write-up option because it may […]

Content Strategy: Removing the Artist for the Sake of Delivery

The sound of one hand clapping is fantastic for the originator: it requires a single point of origin, and a lack of interaction with the other hand. However, the sound of one hand clapping doesn’t make ends meet when you weigh artistic drive versus business need. One of the key takeaways from Erin Kissane’s The […]

Planned Obsolescence: The University

In Kathleen Fitzpatrick’s final section, she tackles the “unstable economic model” that university publishing operates under (155). The university press unfortunately is in a strange state of limbo where they operate for the university and are subsidized by the university, but also serve a purpose outside the university. She’s aware that this section of hers […]

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at cuny.is/dps17.
