The Academic Book in the South
7th – 8th March 2016, 9.30pm – 5.30pm,
Conference Centre, The British Library, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB
This two day conference discusses how profound changes in publishing will affect the Academic Book of the Future in the South. Speakers will address the production, dissemination, reading and reception of the academic book with specific focus on Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. The conference will consider, among other things, how scholars’ ability to access and produce knowledge is facilitated by digital technology and how academics can play a more active role in the creation of, and access to, books in the Arts and Humanities, both printed and digital. A key output of the conference will, we propose, be a Charter for Change for the publication and dissemination of academic books in the South, which will point the way to new partnerships and new opportunities.
