Performing the Scholarly Monograph in Contemporary Digital Culture


1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 1 This is the CommentPress version of Knowledge Production Beyond the Book? Performing the Scholarly Monograph in Contemporary Digital Culture, an openly produced, processual and versioned PhD thesis, open to reuse and remix. This thesis has been developed on the Open Reflections weblog, and also includes a wiki version (which allows editing directly into the text) which is available here.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 The CommentPress WordPress plugin was developed by the Institute for the Future of the Book. This plugin enables users to leave comments alongside the text, next to each paragraph, and has previously been used by McKenzie Wark for his book Gamer Theory (2007), and by Fitzpatrick for the open review of her book Planned Obsolescence (2011). By placing the comments alongside the text (instead of at the bottom of the text which is more common in regular blogs and websites) an attempt is made to subvert the implied hierarchy of ‘text first, comments second’.
