Session on Peer Review

Kathleen Fitzpatrick, in the first chapter of her highly stimulating book, Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy (which is available online), argues that peer review is at the center of all the work of humanists in the academy, outlines problems with the present system, and then goes on to propose ways in which digital technology can be used to make peer review more transparent, productive and rewarding.  I think that it would be useful to have a group conversation to discuss the problems of peer review and ways in which people in the Digital Humanities here at OSU can work to remedy them.

About tannenbaum.1

I have been teaching English courses in the English Department computer labs ever since the labs were set up (over 20 years ago), focusing initially on composition but expanding to literature courses and digital media production courses. My Ph.D. was in English Romantic literature, with a specialty in multimedia artist/writer William Blake. As part of this, I did a minor in studio art. Hence my current interest in teaching and learning to do digital media. I am basically more of a "hands-on" person who also likes to play with concepts, as long as we don't get overly serious about them :-).
