Consequences for the Humanities

Dr. Saul Fisher, who is Associate Program Officer for the Mellon Foundation’s program in Teaching and Technology, made a presentation at the recent MLA in Philadelphia entitled “The Open Source Movement and Higher Education: Consequences for the Humanities.” I found his paper direct and thought-provoking, so I asked Dr. Fisher for permission to post a draft here at the Stoa. He has consented, but asks that I emphasize the DRAFT status of this paper. Readers should also note that his views do not necessarily reflect the official views of the Mellon Foundation. I am sure he would welcome comments; you will find his email address on the paper itself.

By the way, the Association for Computers and the Humanities compiled a guide to the many talks on humanities computing and related subjects at the MLA. (Were there any at all at the APA?)
