What a PhD can be

Through an invitation to link on my site I was made aware of the fact that Gavin Stewart (poet, academic, digital artist and Bakhtin follower) is now a Doctor of Philosophy. His thesis A Homecoming Festival: The Application of the Dialogic Concepts of Addressivity and the Awareness of Participation to an Aesthetic of Computer-mediated Textual Art is online as a written text and as a stunning multimedia work. I still harbour dreams of making a multimedia document to accompany my PhD thesis but I am afraid the time alloted to create the work is maybe just enough for me to struggle through writing a text and nothing more. The fact that Gavin Stewart has achieved such a standard in his PhD project is impressive.
