Networked Publishing asks speakers to question or trace the future or present of digital publishing, particularly as scholarly work and university interests identify themselves as part of larger networks of meaning, interaction, professionalism, and education. What must digital publishing do to continue the promotion of ideas to both specialized and general audiences as our forms of communication continue to change? What is digital publishing currently doing in response to new scholarly demands? What are writers doing to better utilize platforms, media, strategies, audience interaction, or other features?

Academic publishing has dealt with a variety of incidents and narratives over the last several years regarding its ability to succeed in the digital era. We are asking invited speakers to address the challenges, needs, failures, successes, experiences, provocations, and other related topics to the future or present situation of digital publishing as a scholarly and/or academic exercise. Speakers will address audio, print, visual, and other forms of digital publishing.

Date:
