How can graduate students and faculty use digital media to take control of their research agendas and professional identities? What is it like to work in electronic media within a field accustomed to technological research projects? And how do such projects play out in more conservative disciplines? What is the role of interdisciplinary collaboration in humanities computing? And how is the end result of this collaboration best described?
