Cheryl Ball, Wayne State University and the editor of Kairos: Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy.

Open-access, peer-reviewed scholarly publishing has been with us in the academy for nearly 25 years, since the advent of the Web and before. Focusing on the particular history of scholarly multimedia publishing, this talk showcases the kinds of multimedia-driven arguments made in some disciplines’ online, academic journals and connects that work to how multimodal composition is taught in the classroom and can be taught to both students and faculty in the future. 

Cheryl E. Ball is Director of the Digital Publishing Collaborative at Wayne State University Library. Since 2006, Ball has been editor of the online peer-reviewed open-access journal Kairos: Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, which exclusively publishes digital media scholarship. Her recent research in editorial workflows and digital publishing infrastructures can be found in multiple journals and edited collections, as well as on her personal repository, She is the Project Director for Vega, an open-access multimedia academic publishing platform, and serves as the executive director of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals. 

This event is generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Broadening the Bridge Grant and cosponsored by the Center for Innovation in the Liberal Arts at St. Olaf and the Perlman Center for Teaching and Learning (LTC) at Carleton.
