Redesigning the Scholarly Book

Jeffrey Schnapp (Harvard University)

Jeffrey Schnapp’s presentation will be concerned with the metaLABprojects series, in general, and with his forthcoming book in the series The Library Beyond the Book (Harvard University Press 2014), in particular. The series provides a platform for emerging currents of experimental scholarship, documenting key moments in the history of networked culture, and promoting critical thinking about the future of institutions of learning. The volumes’ eclectic, improvisatory, idea-driven style advances the proposition that design is not merely ornamental, but a means of inquiry in its own right.

The Library Beyond the Book at Harvard University Press.
