One of the greatest challenges facing academic institutions in the twenty-first century is determining how best to implement new technologies in the publication of scholarly work. With new and constantly evolving digital tools now at our disposal, are we at the stage where we can or ought to concentrate on generating digital-born scholarship? What will, or should, such scholarship look like? What publishing practices ought to be preserved and which can be improved upon? How can we progress as mission-driven scholars and publishers and be sure that we are not compromising what is essential to our core mission - namely, the quality of our content - to the expediency of new forms of communication (or just plain fun)? In order to address these questions, the Bard Graduate Center is bringing together a group of thoughtful commentators on digital scholarly publication to talk about its future . This gathering aims to address not only practical questions of format and administration, but also theoretical questions about the nature of scholarly publication in the digital age.
