Spring Scholarly Communications Symposium: Communicating Scholarship in the 21st Century

Communicating Scholarship in the 21st Century and to Generations to Come

Spring Scholarly Communication Symposium
April 11, 2014, 10 am - 12 noon
Murray Room, 5th Floor Lauinger Library

RSVP: http://tiny.cc/xhkcdx

As universities evolve, how do academic disciplines endure? How is scholarship communicated across generations? Do academic disciplines undergo identity crises? Are interdisciplinary programs good for academic disciplines? What is lost as some theories or concepts are discarded for new ones; and how are these changes communicated? How do scholars communicate, and how is scholarship perpetuated, in a rapidly changing university environment? How will disciplinary learning be transmitted though mentored experience in a new ecology? What are appropriate apprenticeship models?

The University Library is pleased to present this scholarly communication symposium, which will engage this topic, as a contribution to the larger conversation occurring at the University around the “Future(s) of the University” Initiative.
