Last week the open access book project Alt-Academy: Alternative Academic Careers for Humanities Scholars was officially unveiled by our fearless facilitator and editor Bethany Nowviskie. In it are lots of thoughtful, challenging essays about careers, identities, labor and respect in fields allied to humanities scholarship from colleagues across the world. There’s a strong showing from digital humanities folks and academic and special library librarians. I contributed a piece on public history (natch), and a number of other history colleagues also wrote essays. Do go read and comment on our lovely book.
