Lecture:

Planned Obsolescence:  Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy

Friday, February 17 3:00 PM

211 Student Center Addition

This project began with the difficult process of attempting to get a first book published in an economic environment in which university presses find themselves in increasingly dire straits.  What if the academic monograph is a dying form? If scholarly communication is to have a future, it's clear that it lies online, and yet the most significant obstacles to such a transformation are not technological, but instead social and institutional. How must the academy and the scholars that comprise it change their ways of thinking in order for digital scholarly publishing to become a viable alternative to the university press book? This talk will explore some of those changes and their implications for our lives as scholars and our work within universities.
