I’m so excited about this event I’m organising with Gary Hall on November 29th. Register here if you’d like to attend. Everyone is welcome and the Faculty of Education is really easy to get to. It’s a short walk from Cambridge train station and there are regular trains from London Kings Cross and London Liverpool Street which take around an hour.
Faculty of Education Masterclasses are public talks that engage critically with some of the key concepts that inform thinking and policy in education and knowledge production today – from rankings, to assessment, to identities and equality. All Masterclasses are recorded and videos are made publicly available online, reflecting the commitment of the cluster and the Faculty to making conversations at Cambridge accessible to communities beyond the University.
What does open access mean for academic publishing? How are the options available to academics changing as digital technology transforms scholarly communication? How can we find new models for the creation, publication, and dissemination of knowledge, challenging the received ideas of originality, authorship, and the book? In this masterclass, Gary Hall(Director of the Centre for Postdigital Cultures at the University of Coventry) provides an introduction to pirate philosophy, leading participants through a range of innovative publishing projects which illustrate the full range of possibilities available to us beyond the confines of the marketised academy.
