Digital Scholars Roundtable:
UO Graduate Certificate in New Media
Friday April 1 1:00-2:30
McKenzie Collaboration Center
The worlds in which scholars now live and work are undergoing rapid and dramatic changes. In the humanities and social sciences, scholarship on new media and culture continues to proliferate, myriad efforts to digitize texts and artifacts are underway, and researchers across disciplines are learning how to develop and use digital tools. All these changes affect and alter how we do research, how we publish it, and how we think about the products of scholarly research; indeed, they alter what it means to know anything at all.
As our graduate students – MA and PhD alike – enter an ever more competitive job market, their experience and proficiency with new media will also contribute to their success as scholars and potential employees. UO Digital Scholars have been organizing an effort to create a graduate certificate program in new media and culture. We hope you (faculty, students, administrators) will join us for a roundtable discussion about the possibility of such a certificate program.
