Intermezzo

 

Intermezzo - http://intermezzo.enculturation.net/ - dedicated to publishing work too long for an article and too short for a monograph has published its inaugrual book. Intermezzo is leading the way with digital longform publications, the fugure of academic scholarship. 

 

Intermezzo is edited by Jeff Rice, Chair of WRD. 

Kathleen Fitzpatrick

A talk by Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Professor of Media Studies, Ponoma College and Director of Scholarly Communication, Modern Language Association. What if the academic monograph is a dying form? If scholarly communication is to have a future, it's clear that it lies online, and yet the most significant obstacles to such a transformation are not technological, but instead social and institutional. How must the academy and the scholars that comprise it change their ways of thinking in order for digital scholarly publishing to become a viable alternative to the university press book? This talk will explore some of those changes and their implications for our lives as scholars and our work within universities.

Kentucky Women in the Civil Rights Era: Randolph Hollingsworth

Kentucky has a vast and varied history, but there are still pieces of its past that lay undiscovered. Randolph Hollingsworth, a historian working at the University of Kentucky, taught a course in Kentucky women's history during the Civil Rights era. Hollingsworth's students dug through archives, drafted papers, and even created some new Wikipedia pages in the History of women in Kentucky category. The students' findings and discussions are all available at the Kentucky Women in the Civil Rights Era website.
