FLOSS Manuals invited in a research network on the "Digital Manual"
FLOSS Manuals has been invited in as an affiliated research network member in a research project named ‘Creation and Publication of the “Digital Manual”: Authority, Authorship and Voice.’
This project, lead by Dr Penny Travlou and Dr Smita Kheria from the University of Edinburgh and sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Research Council [AHRC].
It aims at studying ‘Digital Manual’ as a model of emergent multi-authored publication employing open source and co-creative practices. It will focus on four cases studies of creative communities: Fake Press, UpStage, Sauti ya Wakulima and, of course, FLOSS Manuals.
We are happy to be invited in a crowd of very knowledgeable folks in the field, including David Garcia from the Lodon University of the Arts, Simon Biggs from the University of Edinburgh, Chris Meade from the Institute for the Future of the Book, and many other highly recognized experts.
