Dear Colleagues:

Please inform your students interested in advanced study in the digital humanities that the University of Central Florida's doctoral program in Texts and Technology is currently accepting applications. The application deadline for next fall is January 15, 2012. 

The doctoral program in Texts and Technology is part of a growing interdisciplinary field combining the scholarly study, creative production, and assessment of digital media texts. The curriculum emphasizes historical scholarship in media and digital studies, theory and production of new media, and the practical application of digital technologies in a variety of discourses in the humanities.

This innovative program prepares students for research, teaching, and program development. Areas of research and production include digital editing, Web design, multimedia production, distributed education, entertainment, publishing, information architecture, and visualization. Graduates from the Texts and Technology program have gone on to faculty positions in departments of English, Communication, and Digital Media and have taken administrative positions such as Director of Course Design and Production, Director of Academic Creativity, Dean of Distance Learning, and Managing Editor with a variety of organizations.

The University of Central Florida is located in Orlando, an exciting metropolitan area with a diverse array of professional and recreational activities. Students also benefit from opportunities arising in conjunction with numerous non-profit organizations in the Central Florida Research Park adjacent to campus, as well as the UCF Center for Humanities and Digital Research on campus.

For more information concerning the Texts and Technology Ph.D. Program, visit the T&T Webpage, http://tandt.cah.ucf.edu or contact the Program Director, Dr. Rudy McDaniel, at rudy at ucf.edu.  I'd also be happy to answer questions.
