“Imminent Demise or Potential Rejuvenation?: The Future of the Scholarly Monograph”

New forms of scholarship are reshaping both the format and the role of the scholarly monograph. While analysts usually focus on new formats and tools made possible by digital media, keynote speaker Laura Mandell will discuss how changes in the content of arguments made possible by digital forms of scholarly research will impact scholarly communication. Can the monograph be transformed from hierarchical data filter (via argumentation) and a token of prestige into a virtual research environment, and, if not, will it survive?

Laura Mandell, Professor and Director, Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture, Texas A&M University

“At-Scale Strategies to Support the Monograph”

Two large-scale ideas have been proposed to address the need to support monograph publishing in academia. The joint AAU/ARL Task Force has proposed a project for first book or initial scholarly work by new faculty. At the same time, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has been conducting some work to rethink publishing in the humanities. This session will include a discussion about both efforts and how best to engage academia in their consideration.
