Gendering the Commons: open access and the future of feminist (e)publishing

Recent years have seen a considerable rise in the number of online peer-reviewed journals in German and Gender Studies related fields. Additionally, online communities such as the Public Knowledge Project or Creative Commons ask scholars to demand not only increasingly high quality in refereed research, but also to reflect on the manner in which better public access to such research is essential to academic independence and critical democracy. This panel will discuss such lofty goals as they are put into practice and possibly transformed by online publications relating to feminist and German Studies. Submissions could come from a range of perspectives, including editors of e-journals, people who have published (or considered publishing) online, and administrators and faculty members who have reviewed tenure files featuring online publications. The panel seeks to explore the material, creative, theoretical, and ethical possibilities that online formats committed to open access might offer Gender Studies and German Studies (or vice versa), particularly in consideration of the ongoing discourse surrounding the crisis of the humanities.

The organizers invite papers from WiG members that touch on personal, professional, and/or political aspects of these issues. Please submit a 200-300 word proposal to both organizers by March 1, 2011.
