Please join us Friday, October 1, for the Radical Open Access: Experiments in (Post-)Publishing Symposium at the University of Colorado Boulder!
With the demise of traditional gatekeepers, we are witnessing the rapid rise of alternative modes of both scholarly publishing and distribution as well as the artistic exhibition of computer generated works of art in digital environments.
The maturation of open access and collaborative platforms are in fact blurring the distinctions between publishing as a significant force of cultural activity in both contemporary art and leading-edge academic venues.
In this context, the symposium will question the current corporatized systems of academic publishing and the commercial-driven art museum and upmarket gallery systems, as well as serve as a forum to interrogate new models of collective action for collaborating on, creating and sharing scholarship and art. Following the symposium will be a “Clinic for Open Source Arts,” for a conversation about open source digital tools for creativity
Event speakers come from the University of London, Coventry University, UCLA, Winona State University and the University of Denver. Learn more about the speakers below.
This is a hybrid event, taking place in-person at CU Boulder and virtually. Registration is required.
The symposium has been organized by the College of Media, Communication & Information program Intermedia Art, Writing and Performance, and the Center for Research Data & Digital Scholarship, in collaboration with the Post-Publishing programme at the Centre for Postdigital Cultures at Coventry University as part of a series of symposia exploring contemporary approaches to experimental publishing.
