After the Scholarly Monograph Conference Video

In December 2015, the Département de littératures et de langues du monde, section Études anglaises at the Université de Montréal hosted a workshop on the scholarly monograph in a digital context led by Dr. Laura Mandell. A video of the conference is now available online.

Dr. Mandell’s  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.”
