12. The Digital Thesis as a Website, from Graphic Design to Online Tools

  • Anthony Masure (author)
Anthony Masure’s approach deepens the notion of his dissertation work’s readability, working from inside France’s academic system. Noting the technical hurdles of constantly updating a webpage, for example, he designs his PhD-thesis website by cleaning HTML code and without using a CMS, thus aiming for a ‘true’ version of his dissertation that, in fact, supersedes the version he submitted to obtain his degree. Ultimately, Masure leads us back to Tim Berners-Lee by advocating for sharing knowledge without borders and critically engaging with the potentially limiting affordances of specific media prescribed for knowledge production.
