Digital Publishing in the Arts and Humanities
Tuesday, 20 November 2012, 3:00-4:30 p.m., Room 165 Thompson Library
The digital environment has enabled exciting new forms of scholarship, and made it possible to communicate and collaborate more openly and effectively. It also poses significant challenges for the traditional, print-based publishing ecosystem, and for those responsible for evaluating scholarship – including promotion and tenure committees. Panelists will explore ways in which publishing is changing in the arts and humanities, and will lead discussion on the opportunities and pitfalls inherent in the world of digital publishing.
- Melanie Schlosser, Convener (Digital Publishing Librarian, OSU Libraries) will give an overview of trends in digital publishing.
- Cynthia Selfe (Humanities Distinguished Professor, Department of English) will talk about her experience with Computers and Composition Digital Press (http://ccdigitalpress.org/).
- Wayne Carlson (Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies and Dean of Undergraduate Education) will talk about digital publishing in the arts and his experiences with electronic educational publishing.
