Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy
by Kathleen Fitzpatrick
Publisher: NYU Press 2009
Number of pages: 254
Planned Obsolescence is both a provocation to think more broadly about the academy's future and an argument for reconceiving that future in more communally-oriented ways. Facing these issues head-on, Kathleen Fitzpatrick focuses on the technological changes--especially greater utilization of internet publication technologies, including digital archives, social networking tools, and multimedia--necessary to allow academic publishing to thrive into the future.
