Back in February, we began this series exploring scholarly communication.
What does it mean to be a scholar now? In the eight weeks of the series, we’ve had thoughtful contributions from experts discussing a wide array of areas related to the changing landscape of what it means to be an academic in the 21st century. The topics we’ve discussed here include:
- being a public intellectual;
- responses to Nick Kristof’s critique of academics as not public enough;
- the convergence of social science and journalism;
- the perils and promises of open access publishing;
- conversations about the Future of Higher Education with and around Cathy Davidson’s meta-MOOC;
- documentaries as a multimedia form that incorporates scholarship, activism for social justice and art;
- the way measures of ‘impact’ are shifting and how those measures can be used to further social justice.
Next, we’ll compile all these posts into one, easy-to-download, completely free e-book for you to read, use and share.
