Please join us for “Research Without Borders: Negotiating Constraints and Open Scholarship”, our third event of the academic year in our Research Without Borders panel discussion series. This event will take place from 1-3pm on Thursday, February 27, 2014 in Garden Room 1 of Columbia’s Faculty House. It is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required.
How is research produced, accessed, and distributed in the presence of constraints? What does it mean for underserved communities to have research openly accessible to them? How does community participation in research change the nature of that research, and how do academia and society benefit? How and why should academic work be made available to the public?
Points of discussion will include: exploring the ways research is being made openly accessible to overcome these constraints, how and why researchers have incorporated community participation into their projects, and alternative scholarship distribution models.
Our panelists are Leith Mullings, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at CUNY, Dennis Tenen, Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities and New Media Studies at Columbia University in the Department of English and Comparative Literature, and Lela Prashad, co-founder and Chief Data Scientist at NiJeL. Moderating the panel is Manan Ahmed, Assistant Professor of History at Columbia University.
This event is co-sponsored by Columbia University Libraries/Information Services’ Scholarly Communication Program and the Digital Humanities Center. It is listed on the Columbia Libraries/Information Services website here. Join the discussion on Twitter at #rwob and @ScholarlyComm.
Hope to see you there – and please feel free to forward this to your colleagues!
