Janneke Adema and Gary Hall will both be speaking at The Post-Digital Scholar: Publishing between Open Access, Piracy and Public Spheres Conference which is due to take place November 12-14, 2014 at Centre for Digital Cultures, Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany. Adema will be speaking in the session on The Mess that Open Access has become, which also features Nathaniel Tkacz (University of Warwick), Armin Beverungen (Leuphana University), Martin Haspelmath (Max Planck Institute)
and Helge Peters (Oxford University). Hall will be speaking in the session on Open Access and Piracy which also features Bodo Balasz (University of Amsterdam) and Henry Warwick (University of Toronto).
Julia Rehfeldt and Stefanie Kaste conducted interviews with both Adema and Hall which will be reblogged here from the Hybrid Publishing Lab notepad. Interviews with some of the other conference participants, including Florian Cramer and Soren Pold, can be found here.
For three days, publishers, researchers, programmers, designers, artists, and entrepreneurs will discuss how research and publishing in the humanities have changed over the past decade. The conference will explore new tools for gathering knowledge, examine platforms for multimedia publishing, or collaborative writing experiments.
Participants will focus on the interplay between pixels and print, and discuss open and closed modes of knowledge, in order to seek out what this elusive thing could be: post-digital knowledge.
