I am not sure if I should announce this myself, but as of Monday, January 28th, around noon, I passed my Dissertation Proposal Defense. The title of my dissertation proposal is “Machine-level Policy Implementation by Data Managers and Data Scientists, and the Impact on Digital Stewardship: a Mixed-Methods Content Analysis.”
Yes, I have a new title now. I am a “Doctoral Candidate”!
I should have about a year left, now. My program “front-loads” the work.
