MLA Commons

As many of you already know, we’re launching MLA Commons at the convention on 3 January. I’m hoping to spend a session at THATCamp MLA getting any MLA members who are interested into the network a day early, in no small part so that you can spend some time playing around with the site and help us produce some content there. We’re hoping that members coming in for the first time on the 3rd will get a sense of how lively the network might be, and seeing what you can do with the site will be a huge part of that. I’d also like to spend some part of the session brainstorming with THATCampers about ways that the network might develop as we go forward. I’ll look forward to generating some new ideas with you, and to seeing what we might make together.

About kfitzpatrick

I've recently published Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Humanities with NYU Press, focusing on the social and institutional changes that will be required for digital scholarly publishing to become an accepted part of academic life. I spent 13 years as a member of the English and media studies faculty at Pomona College, but have taken a leave of absence from that position to work as the first director of scholarly communication at the Modern Language Association. I have many secret plans for revolutionizing everything.
