This panel will focus on the status of the academic monograph and published research, with William Chace, former president of Wesleyan University and Emory University, Elaine Treharne, professor of English at Stanford University, and Eric Rasmussen, rare book collector and editor of the RSC Shakespeare editions. Douglas Bruster, University of Texas at Austin professor of English, will serve as moderator for the Academics.  The discussion will cover how e-publishing impacts research, reading, and teaching, and will zero in on whether the published book will likely remain the standard for tenure and promotion.
