Before I go into the first part of the Twitter Review of the Post-Digital Scholar Conference – Day 1, I’d like to thank everyone that joined this event. The Conference was certainly not my first conference this year, but it was (not surprisingly) one of my favorite.
Publishing between Open Access, Piracy and Public Spheres: New media is dead! Long live new media! For three days, publishers, researchers, programmers, designers, artists, and entrepreneurs will discuss how research and publishing in the humanities have changed over the past decade. The conference will explore new tools for gathering knowledge, examine platforms for multimedia publishing, or collaborative writing experiments.
Participants will focus on the interplay between pixels and print, and discuss open and closed modes of knowledge, in order to seek out what this elusive thing could be: post-digital knowledge.
