What is the role of scholar-activists in times of political and social upheaval? How have digital technologies transformed scholarship and changed our conceptions of authority and audience? How does scholarship respond to challenges that communities confront?

Join CUNY librarians and faculty for a talk by guest speakers Polly Thistlethwaite and Jessie Daniels, CUNY faculty and authors of Being a Scholar in the Digital Era: Transforming Scholarly Practices for the Public Good (Policy Press, 2016). The talk will be followed by a lively open discussion about scholarly practices, digital publics, activism, and the ethics of sharing.

We encourage session attendees to submit questions and comments in advance of the session to start a discussion.

This event, hosted by the LACUNY Scholarly Communications Roundtable, is part of Open Access Week (October 23-29, 2017).

Where: Graduate Center Room C205
When: October 27, 10am-12pm
Refreshments: Yes!
RSVP via Eventbrite
