JustPublics@365 Summit: Create. Connect. Transform.
A key component of the JustPublics@365 is a series of four Summits. Each of these high-profile events is intended to engage academics in creating new kinds of knowledge streams (podcasts, videos, data visualizations). Connecting scholars, activists, policy makers, and media to wider publics. Focusing on specific areas and ways that, working together, we can transform the world in ways that promote social justice.
ReImagining Scholarly Communication for the 21st Century
In a week-long series of events, this JustPublics@365 Summit will explore a set of questions about big changes in scholarly communication.
How is the web changing the way we produce knowledge, engage with publics beyond the academy and work for social justice? What does it mean to be a scholar in the digital era? How is the measure of scholarly impact changing?
