Surviving graduate school

The following is some basic advice on how to survive graduate school in the digital humanities:

  • Learn to skim. You may be assigned a lot of readings - learn to read quickly.
  • Learn to take useful notes. Take notes that will make sense to you years later. Don't take notes for the sake of it.
  • Learn to ask good questions.
  • Learn to answer questions.
  • Learn to figure out how others have posed and answered questions.
  • Take responsibility for your learning.
  • Ask stupid questions.
  • Figure out the technology.
