A great event held next week, directly before class. May be interesting to Graduate Students with questions on publishing and their fields pre-and-post graduation. Also an interesting conversation on whether materials for courses should be accessible openly or if pay walls are necessary. We’ve had conversations like this in the course in the past. This event will supply much context!

Martin Burke (The Graduate Center, CUNY), Jessie Daniels (The Graduate Center, CUNY), and Ken Wissoker (Duke University Press & The Graduate Center) will act as respondents, opening up a lively conversation on the state of open access publishing and the future of scholarly communication.
