   Call for proposals: HASTAC 2011 Conference: Digital Scholarly

What will a dissertation or monograph look like (or sound like) in 20
years? With new forms of digital scholarship evolving, how can credit be
given for projects that are non-traditional? How will university presses
and libraries publish and archive new and evolving forms of scholarship?

The creation and sharing of new academic knowledge in the 21st century
is pushing the boundaries of traditional systems of scholarship. Our
question to a diverse audience from both within and beyond the academy
is: What next? How do we adapt our systems, practices, and institutions
to the creation, display, communication, presentation, dissemination,
and organization of 21st century digital scholarship?

Librarians, PhD students, junior scholars, faculty up for tenure,
archivists, Masters students, multimedia artists, publishers, school
teachers, technology designers, innovators, digital humanists at any
stage in their careers -- all have a stake in how we re-imagine digital
scholarly communication.

HASTAC 2011 invites you to join this lively discussion of digital
scholarly communication in the 21st century.
