Humanities Roundtable 2021 — The Monograph in an Evolving Humanities Ecosystem

Wednesday October 20, 12.00 - 4.00pm EDT (Canada/USA) 

For many in the humanities, the monograph -- whether published traditionally or as an open access title -- is the single most important deliverable. So, what — if anything — has changed in the production and delivery of a monograph? There is a wider array of formats but is the production workflow dramatically different now? What about licensing arrangements? Discovery and resource-sharing? This full day program offers an opportunity for professionals working in the humanities to come together to discuss this most critical form of output. Confirmed speakers include: Lisa M. Bayer, AUP President (2021-22), University of Georgia Press; Paula Krebs, Modern Language Association; and Liz Krznarich, DataCite.
