Draft essay: Shifts in the humanities

Since last September I’ve been a member of the Townsend Fellows program at UC Berkeley.  My contribution to the program was an essay on the scholarly publishing crisis in literature studies, taken as a symptom of larger ways in which the humanities are shifting to accommodate social, technological, and economic change.  I presented to the group today, and got very helpful comments and feedback from the other Fellows.

Warning:  essay is in High Draft; footnotes in particular are very messy.   Please feel free to send comments and suggestions to me at kmunro at library dot berkeley dot com.
