Publication Practices for Engaged Scholars

Collaborative Project with CUNY Graduate Center

Building on previous investigations into the publishing challenges and opportunities for publicly engaged scholars in the humanities, Kath Burton (Routledge), Daniel Fisher-Livne (HUC-JIR and NHA), and Kendra Sullivan (CUNY Graduate Center) are launching the first part of a collaborative project kindly supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research from the Center for the Humanities at the CUNY Graduate Center.

Designed to investigate the place of academic and extra-academic publication in U.S. public humanities research, teaching, and programming, the project will document and analyze the ways in which different modes of publication have impacted academic and public life and comprises two related components:

1) a qualitative survey and;

2) a series of focus groups.

The results of the project will be presented at the 2023 National Humanities Conference in Indianapolis, IN and prepared for wider distribution and further engagement as we work towards defining publishing solutions for publicly engaged scholars.

We invite anyone who would like to contribute to the project to complete this short survey (10 minutes) which will remain open until August 31st, 2023.
