Faculty Book: Jessie Daniels & Polly Thistlethwaite

Jessie Daniels and Polly Thistlethwaite Being a Scholar in the Digital Era: Transforming Scholarly Practice For The Public Good (Policy Press at the University of Bristol, 2016)

Being a Scholar in the Digital EraWhat opportunities, rather than disruptions, do digital technologies present? How do developments in digital media not only support scholarship and teaching but also further social justice? Written by two experts in the field, this accessible book offers practical guidance, examples, and reflection on this changing foundation of scholarly practice. It is the first to consider how new technologies can connect academics, journalists, and activists in ways that foster transformation on issues of social justice. Discussing digital innovations in higher education as well as what these changes mean in an age of austerity, this book provides both a vision of what scholars can be in the digital era and a road map to how they can enliven the public good.

Jessie Daniels (GC/Hunter) is a professor of sociology and critical social psychology. Polly Thistlethwaite is a professor and Chief Librarian at the Graduate Center.
