The Innovation in Digital Publishing in the Humanities session at the American Historical Association 2015 Annual Meeting in New York is co-presented by the Wellcome Trust and The New York Academy of Medicine’s Center for the History of Medicine and Public Health.
The Innovation in Digital Publishing panel will be chaired by Stephen Robertson, professor and director of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History & New Media at George Mason, whose Digital Harlem project has won multiple awards for innovation in digital history. We’ve asked our speakers to start the conversation early by giving their thoughts on the biggest challenge or opportunity facing digital publishing.
Feel free to pose questions to the participants individually or as a group; they will respond here on the blog and take your thoughts into consideration for the panel itself. Posts will go live in batches over the coming weeks.
To start the discussion, we offer four perspectives on the possibilities created through digital publishing from Cecy Marden (Wellcome Trust), Lisa Norberg (Barnard College Library, Columbia University), Martin Eve (University of Lincoln and Open Library of Humanities), and Kathleen Fitzpatrick (Modern Language Association). We will publish thoughts from Matthew K. Gold (New York City College of Technology and City University of New York, Graduate Center) soon.
