PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge
The PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge at the Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI) provides an arena in which PhD and MFA students involved in the humanities and interpretive social sciences can learn about new digital scholarship, engage with its challenges, and see its promise for their own research and professional lives within or outside the university.
Innovations in the digital, informational, and computational fields are generating new forms of pedagogy and shaping novel modes of scholarship. They are widening our collaborative communities and expanding the publics with whom PhD and MFA candidates will engage. In the PhD Lab, we seek to balance the practical and the conceptual by allowing participants to prototype projects and receive peer feedback to enrich their understanding of the potential of digital scholarship.
