The Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities at IU has announced the visit of Dr. William “Bro” Adams, Former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

A growing number of arts and humanities dissertations with digital or nontraditional components on the Bloomington campus highlights a greater dialogue surrounding digital dissertations from groups formed by the HASTAC scholarly community and symposia. IDAH is adding the voices of current graduate students and recently degreed PhD students, who will lead a roundtable discussion facilitated by Dr. Adams. The roundtable will provide a contextual snapshot of the digital dissertation’s current state, examine opportunities that digital dissertations afford, and reveal institutional gaps that need to be addressed. Additional commentary from Dr. Adams will offer an outside perspective on publication trends and future academic horizons.

The panel of speakers includes: Dr. Mollie Ables, recent graduate of Musicology; Isabel Alvarez-Echandi, PhD Candidate in History; Mary Borgo, PhD candidate in English Literature; Katie Chapman, PhD candidate in Musicology; and Dr. Jessica Leach, recent graduate of History.
