Reimagining the Dissertation in the 21st Century

Year of Funding: 

We seek to reimagine the dissertation and its potential audiences by engaging in three activities: 1) A crossdisciplinary inquiry into expanded dissertation forms and the communities they can address; 2) Dissertation workshops for experimenting with new forms and developing strategies for reaching wider audiences; and 3) Sharing the results of our inquiry and practical experience near the end of the academic year, providing a road map for present and future dissertation writers.
