The afternoon will include a talk by Dr. N.

Katherine Hayles During several months in 2017-18, Dr. Hayles interviewed scholars and university presses about the impact of the digital humanities on how they thought about their knowledge practices and career trajectories. Three strategies emerged for presses and scholars alike. The first was to continue traditional modes of production with slight changes; the second was a hybrid mixture of new and old; and the third was an adventuresome embrace of the digital humanities for new ways of thinking about knowledge production and scholarly careers. This talk will assess these different strategies in their respective contexts, discussing the strengths and limitations of each. The talk is intended to be a provocation for further discussion and comments from Symposium participants and will be followed by Q and A. 2:00-3:00—Digital Scholarship Lab Open House and Reception About the Speakers Dr. Kathleen Fitzpatrick Kathleen Fitzpatrick is Director of Digital Humanities and Professor of English at Michigan State University.
