HASTAC V at the University of Michigan

by Korey Jackson on November 17, 2011

HASTAC—the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory—is hosting its fifth annual conference at the University of Michigan. The conference will be held on December 1st – 3rd and is hosted by the UM’s Institute for the Humanities and sponsored in part by MLibrary.

This year’s theme, “Digital Scholarly Communication,” focuses on the promise and challenge of new forms of academic publication and dissemination. Featured events include keynotes byCathy DavidsonDan AtkinsDan CohenJosh GreenbergJames Leach and Siva Vaidhyanathan. Panels and lightning talks will cover a range of topics, from “digital native” culture to questions about access, economics, and representation in the dynamic world of scholarly communication.

Folks from digitalculturebooks and MPublishing are helping to organize the conference and will be on hand to present some of our recent publications. It’s exciting to see this kind of high-caliber critical attention being paid to scholarly communication—a theme that is not only near and dear to the DCB team, but also has an immediate impact on the scholars we support.

Hope to see you there!
