The Département de littératures et de langues du monde, section Études anglaises at the Université de Montréal is hosting a workshop lead by Dr. Laura Mandell, on the scholarly monograph in a digital context at 2:30pm Thursday Dec.3 at the Carrefour des Arts et des Sciences, C-2059. The workshop will consist of a discussion around this cross-disciplinary topic with colleagues in other departments in the Faculty, along with a visiting colleague from the de l’Université Libre de Bruxelles.

The workshop will be followed by a conference at 5pm with Dr. Mandell entitled “After the Scolarly Monograph.” This paper “discusses the effects of Digital Humanities as an emerging field on scholarly communication and publication practices, arguing that we currently have the opportunity to rejuvenate Humanities disciplines based upon the affordances of digital media. Creating electronic articles, books, and editions that constitute Virtual Research Environments offers us the opportunity to build multi-authored stores of positive knowledge, but this opportunity might be lost if not instaurated by critical analyses of disciplinary practices as codified by the print monograph.”
