Bard Graduate Center Logo Why Come to Hear Matthew K. Gold?

Matthew K. Gold will give a Brown Bag Lunch presentation on Thursday, October 18, from 12:15 to 1:15 pm. His talk is entitled “Scholarly Publishing Beyond the Printed Page.”

Digital humanities scholars have long experimented with modes of scholarship that move beyond the printed page into interactive forms of expression and communication. This presentation will explore two such projects—the Debates in the Digital Humanities book series and the Manifold publishing platform—that make use of digital affordances while retaining the benefits of print publication. From composition to peer review to publication, these projects foster networked, iterative scholarship that advance scholarly ideas in public venues and that encourage interaction with non-academic audiences.

Matthew K. Gold is Associate Professor of English and Digital Humanities at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), where he holds teaching appointments in the PhD Program in English, the Master’s Programs in Digital Humanities, Data Analysis and Visualization, and Liberal Studies, and the doctoral certificate programs in Interactive Technology and Pedagogy and American Studies. He serves as Advisor to the Provost for Digital Initiatives, Director of the CUNY Academic Commons, Director of the GC Digital Scholarship Lab, and Director of the MA Program in Digital Humanities and the MS Program in Data Analysis and Visualization. He is co-editor (with Lauren F. Klein) of the Debates in the Digital Humanities book series. His collaborative digital humanities projects include Manifold Scholarship (with Doug Armato), Looking for Whitman, Commons In A Box, Social Paper (with Erin Glass), and DH Box (with Stephen Zweibel). He is President of the Association for Computers and the Humanities, the major DH scholarly society in the United States.

This talk will take place in the Seminar Room at 38 West 86th Street and is open to the BGC community and invited guests. Please RSVP to
