Humanities PhD Plus
A new article from Inside Higher Ed on formalizing digital humanities training for humanities PhD students. The article reports on the The Praxis Network, whose "programs are allied but differently-inflected humanities education initiatives, mainly focused on graduate training, and all engaged in rethinking pedagogy and campus partnerships in relation to the digital. Among other elements, the initiatives emphasize new models of methodological training and collaborative research. Each program exists within a particular ecosystem of disciplinary expectations, institutional needs, available resources, leadership styles, and specific challenges."
