Event description

This workshop has been postponed due to an industrial action by the Universities and Colleges Union on 23 February. A new date will be confirmed soon.

We are at a turning point in the publishing of art historical research. To what extent is the existing model of art history publishing sustainable? What does the future hold for the illustrated scholarly print journal and monograph? How is art history responding to the push for online open access publishing? How do copyright and licensing restrictions and costs affect what can be published and in what form? This session brings together print and online publishers and editors, an intellectual property expert and academics to think about the way forward.

* Sarah Victoria Turner, Head of Research, Paul Mellon Centre
* Natalie Foster, Routledge
* Bernard Horrocks, Intellectual Property Manager, Tate
* Steve Edwards, Birkbeck
* Chair: Leslie Topp, Birkbeck
