AboutAs head of digital initiatives at the MLA, I project manage Humanities Commons, MLA Commons, and CORE and work to find ways that digital technologies can serve those communities of practice in the humanities. I am particularly interested in open-access publishing models, open educational resources, and open peer review; expanding the definition and recognition of “scholarship” beyond the article and monograph; and rethinking the values we reward and promote in higher education.
