Open Access And The Humanities

Sarah Winifred Searle | Digital Arts & Humanities at Harvard University | June 24, 2013

On Thursday, June 27th at 2 pm, Harvard will host a public talk about Open Access and the Humanities in the Thompson Room of the Barker Center. Presented by the Open Library of the Humanities Academic Project Directors, Martin Eve and Caroline Edwards, they will discuss:

“The greatest successes of the Open Access movement have taken place within the sciences where the tipping point was all but reached in 2012. In the humanities, however, there has been a greater degree of skepticism as to the cross-applicability of the models deployed in scientific publishing and the argument continues to rage. In this talk, we detail the background to open access publishing more broadly in historical terms before sequentially evaluating the economic models, social strategies and areas of contention within the humanities subjects themselves.”
