Publishing and Publicly Engaged Scholarship: Model Practices for Publication in the Humanities

This session brings together publishers, librarians, and scholarly society executives to explore challenges and opportunities relating to publishing publicly engaged humanities scholarship. In 2020, the Public Humanities & Publishing Working Group, convened by Routledge, Taylor & Francis, and the National Humanities Alliance (USA), assembled to document ways in which publishing intersects with and enriches publicly engaged work. Across the humanities, researchers are engaging wide-ranging communities in their scholarship as audiences and as partners. In Durham, North Carolina, for example, the SNCC Digital Gateway (, an archive and documentary website, was co-created by academics at Duke University and their community partners, SNCC Legacy Project and Teaching for Change. The Jewish Kentucky Oral History Initiative ( brought together faculty and students with the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, University of Kentucky Libraries to create digital stories, exhibits, and podcasts drawing on oral history interviews with members of the state's Jewish community.

43rd Annual Meeting (2021)

"Charting a New Course: From Chaos to Innovation" Without dwelling on the tumultuous events of the past year, our 43rd Annual Meeting aimed to recognize their impact, igniting—and sometimes forcing—innovation to meet changing demands. We explored the many new paths that materialize if we are willing to embrace the unexpected. What new insights and strategies have been discovered and implemented? What are the possibilities that have yet to be realized? As we move from reacting to adapting, how will our responses change the future of scholarly communications? And how should our responsibility to the larger academic ecosystem during this extraordinary time shape those responses? If you missed the SSP Annual Meeting, you can purchase individual keynote, plenary, and educational sessions on demand in the SSP OnDemand Video Content Library. You can also purchase an All Access Pass to the content on the Pathable platform through November 1.
