Humanities Publishing Roundtable

Nov 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Four profile pictures of female-identifying speakers


Universities and their affiliated publishing landscapes continue to change rapidly. In the arts and humanities, presses, libraries, and humanities centers have all played different roles in publishing and dissemination. Open access and community-engaged efforts continue to redefine our work.

How might we reimagine these roles in this space of change? How do we attend to the mission of the university for humanities research generation and sharing? Join us for a two-day conversation about publishing in the humanities as we map out current roles and imagine new processes at the center, library, university, press, and regional university system levels.

Includes conversation and guidance from:

  • Lauren Cooper

Digital Scholarship Librarian and Managing Director, Center for Black Digital Research/#DigBlk, Penn State University

  • Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe

Professor & Coordinator for Research and Teaching Professional Development, University of Illinois

  • Jasmine Mulliken

Production and Preservation Manager, Digital Projects Stanford University Press



Former Digital Humanities Lab, E272

Lauren Cooper, Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, and Jasmine Mulliken, “Mapping Current and Future Roles in Humanities Publishing Projects”

Followed by role identification, asset mapping, and creative reimagining exercises facilitated by the UWM Center for 21st Century Studies.

Workshop will aim to end at 12:30PM CST.


Free and open to the public. Includes refreshments, coffee, and tea on each day. REGISTER HERE.
