Paper Publications

In 2021, C21 sees itself as a vital part of the ongoing debate about the primacy of the “monograph” as the measure of scholarly productivity. We are actively exploring the range of forms that publication can take and forming relationships with publishers similarly questioning the boundaries of their field. 

Digital Publications

We publish content digitally through our Thinking C21 website, which hosts our blog as well as our Interactive Book Club.

Thinking C21 Blog

Thinking C21, the Center for 21st Century Studies blog, has been recently updated with the announcement of our Lonely No More! programming. Featuring an Interactive Book Club and links to our virtual roundtable events, Thinking C21 will be continuously updated with exciting content!

Interactive Book Club

To expand the scope of our roundtable conversations, the Interactive Book Club is a resource to promote discussion, collaboration, and exploration. In line with the topics of each roundtable in the Lonely No More series, we have put together a book club, complete with guest recommendations from panelists, discussion questions, and other relative resources.

Audio / Visual

We also branch out from the written word with audio and visual publications. Check out our podcasts and recorded talks below.
