"Scholarly Societies in the Humanities: New Models and Innovation" is part of the Research Without Borders speaker series at Columbia University.Scholarly societies have long been central to the scholarly communication system in the humanities. Membership in a scholarly society has provided crucial networking opportunities for scholars. Societies publish prestigious journals, often using revenue from journal subscriptions to underwrite other activities. Yet the sustainability of these services is now under enormous pressure due to factors including the proliferation of social media, changes in scholarly publishing models, and reduced funding opportunities. In response, scholarly societies in the humanities are experimenting with new service models to reinvent themselves as 21st-century institutions.The panelists have all been deeply involved in discussions about the future of learned societies:Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Director of Scholarly Communication, Modern Language AssociationRobert Townsend, Deputy Director, American Historical AssociationDianne Harris, past-President, Society of Architectural HistoriansVisit the Scholarly Communication Program website for information on past and upcoming Research Without Borders events: You can also follow RWB events on Twitter by searching for the hashtag #rwob.----------------------------------------------------------Date: March 5, 2013Sponsors: Scholarly Communication Program and Digital Humanities Center
