Grad Research: AMS Dissertations Infographic, 2010-2011

The American Studies Association recently published the titles of American Studies dissertations from all reporting schools in 2010-2011. What better way to feature them than with a Wordle? For those unfamiliar with Wordle, the web application creates word clouds out of any text, visualizations that give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the original. With these visual data, we can (maybe) glean a little bit of information about which topics are currently in vogue to study in American Studies. Enjoy!
