Research Without Borders: Publishing Without a Publisher? Scholars Are Doing It For Themselves
Date: September 24, 2014 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm EDT
Location: Faculty House
Why are scholars choosing to self-publish their research, and how? What are the benefits of self-publication or “doing it yourself” publishing? Which academic disciplines are engaging with these publishing methods? How does the academy perceive DIY or self-publishing? In this panel discussion, speakers will explore the ways in which scholars are self-publishing or DIY-publishing their research, and why they choose to do so. Topics of discussion will include the different forms that scholarly self-publishing take, who in the academy is self-publishing, and how academia views such efforts. Our speakers: Tara McPherson, Associate Professor of Critical Studies at USC's School of Cinematic Arts. Shannon Mattern, Associate Professor in the School of Media Studies at The New School in New York. Alberto Pepe, co-founder of Authorea. Gregg Gordon, President and CEO of the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). Our moderator: Alondra Nelson, Dean of Social Science and professor of sociology and gender studies at Columbia University.
