Notable Case Studies on ETDs in the Humanities

History

  • Hagen shared studies of student successes in his conference presentations in the areas of Creative Writing and History.  Hagen led case study on WVU History dissertations and Open Access.  This study revealed an incredible and path-breaking student success story.  Shirley Stewart Burns’ ETD, Bringing Down the Mountains: The Impact of Mountaintop Removal on Southern West Virginia Communities, has allowed her to accomplish her goal of raising the public consciousness and discourse about mountain top removal. She was able to reach a world-wide audience almost instantaneously, resulting in publication of a book that is now in use in the K-12 and higher education curriculum, and ultimately impacted national and state public policy.


Creative Writing

  • Hagen led another case study on WVU Creative Writers and Open Access.  This study examined multiple cohorts of creative writers, their selection of ETD Web distribution and their subsequent performance in the field.  Hagen noted that some compromise may be possible regarding access versus publication interests.  The study revealed that students who had granted open access to their ETDs in the early years had more evidence of a publication record than those who had restricted access.  The study further revealed that Sara Pritchard, MFA, Fiction Writer/Editor, Adjunct Faculty, from West Virginia University Department of English was able to initially restrict access to her creative writing thesis, subsequently won the Houghton Mifflin Publishing Contest and granted open access to her thesis after the book was published.
