The Digital Futures of Scholarship

In this special presentation co-sponsored by ACERT and the Office of the Provost, Dr. Kathleen Fitzpatrick will explore the ways that certain scholarly processes (such as aspects of research and writing) have, over the last 25 years, become fully digital, while others (especially publishing) have only begun to make those transitions. Dr. Fitzpatrick will discuss what we can do to make the digital future of scholarship as productive as possible.

Please join us for the presentation, discussion, and wine and cheese reception. The first 25 attendees will receive a free copy of Dr. Fitzpatrick's latest book, Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy.

Kathleen Fitzpatrick is Director of Scholarly Communication of the Modern Language Association and Visiting Research Professor of English at NYU. She is author of Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy  (NYU Press, 2011) and of The Anxiety of Obsolescence: The American Novel in the Age of Television  (Vanderbilt University Press, 2006). She is co-founder of the digital scholarly network MediaCommons, where she has led a number of experiments in open peer review and other innovations in scholarly publishing.
