The Ivory Tower & the Open Web

February 22, 2011, Volume 57, No. 23

On February 25 at 10:30 a.m., Dan Cohen, associate professor of history and art history at George Mason University and director of the Center for History and New Media, will discuss The Ivory Tower & the Open Web, the subject of his forthcoming book (University of Michigan Press). He will focus on what he views as academia’s reluctance to import the open web’s most successful models, such as blogs and social media, and what might happen if this flow were reversed and scholars more wholeheartedly embraced these new genres.

This talk is sponsored by the Libraries and the Cinema Studies Program; it will be held in the Class of ’55 Conference Room (Rm. 241), Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center.
