This three-parts conference — including talks, roundtables, and workshops — will discuss alternative publishing options for the humanities by showcasing some of the experiments that are currently taking place in the realm of academic book publishing. It aims to inspire authors, publishers, technology developers and others, to (continue to) speculate on new collaborative futures for open humanities research and publication. It also aims to discuss how these book experiments could sit within more standardised or established workflows for print and online book production, dissemination, and preservation.
The conference will engage with questions such as:
· How will the form of the book need to adapt (or does it need to adapt?) to still accommodate the research that humanities scholars will want to do in the future?
· How can speculating on alternative book futures question the hegemonic fixtures in academic publishing?
· How can we create new communities around our research by experimenting with the forms and relationalities of our books and publishing?
· How can we promote the irreducible plurality of research through our academic publishing cultures?
