AO: Regular conversations and decision-making across disciplines.
AO: Kenner writes: “The need and desire for digital infrastructure—often seen as a format that can extend the reach of our work—creates opportunities for collaboration with experts from other knowledge domains.” (282)
AO: iterative discussion; Kenner holds that “open participation in academic culture should be principles that guide the design of digital infrastructure” (284)
AO: she looks at collaboration between developers, designers and the editorial team of CA (281). “Designing and developing digital infrastructure is one place where we can cultivate relationships with partners outside our disciplinary or knowledge domains—librarians, computer scientists, and designers, for example. Bringing together people from different fields of expertise can present challenges, but ultimately, our digital projects will be more robust when informed and supported by knowledge sets and resources from other fields.” (283)
AO: “The increase in open-access journal–university library partnerships (such as in the case of ShareCA and CA’s move to place OJS at Duke Libraries) is a crucial step towards reconfiguring the political economy of scholarly publishing, and potentially towards shaping the future conditions of higher education” (284)
AO: digital humanities; labor of publishing
AO: Kenner is thinking about how digital infrastructures (the “layers of electronics, institutions, code, paradigms, experts, networks, service providers, information systems, standards, and texts assembled to bring scholarship online”) and how they open and close possibilities for scholarly production and engagement. She is especially focused on publishing infrastructure and changes to the digital realm.
AO: Citing Star, Kenner holds that the technical infrastructure and human expertises (the “standards, wires, and settings”) need to be understood to understand the “aesthetics, justice, and change” of digital scholarly production. She focuses on the techno level of analysis but also includes analysis of the organizations and of their expertises involved.
