Hall is professor of Media and Performing Arts at Coventry University and author of Digitize This Book!: The Politics of New Media, or Why We Need Open Access Now. He will discuss open-access initiatives in the humanities and their implications for our notions of academic authorship, the book, publication, attribution, citation, peer-review, intellectual property, and content creation.
Co-sponsored by the Scholarly Communication Program, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the School of the Arts, this event is free and open to the public. It is the second of six events this academic year in a speaker series organized by the Scholarly Communication Program. Join us on November 9 for Columbia University Professor of Religion Mark Taylor’s discussion of his book Crisis on Campus.
Follow the series remotely via Twitter at http://twitter.com/ScholarlyComm. Video will be distributed through the Program's website and Columbia University's iTunesU page, as well as on YouTube.
