It is open to practitioners, researchers, and all who work in a critical relation to the digital. Catered lunch and refreshments will be provided for all attendees.

Keynote talk by Kathleen Fitzpatrick, MSU
“Generous Thinking: Working in Public.”

Working in public, and with the public, can enable scholars to build vital, sustainable research communities, both within their fields, with other scholars in different fields, and with folks off-campus who care about the kinds of work that we do. By finding ways to connect with readers and writers beyond our usual circles of experts, in a range of different registers, and in ways that move beyond enabling them to listen to us to instead allow for meaningful response, we can create the possibilities for far more substantial public participation in and engagement with the humanities, and with the academy more broadly. We can build programs and networks and platforms that do not just bring the university to the world, but that also involve the world in the university.
