The Space Between and FUSE 2015


Pleased to announce that the first digital issue of The Space Between: Literature and Culture 1914-1945 is live:  a special volume on the centenary of the First World War.  (We’re also on Twitter — @SpaceBetweenJ.)

I was also happy to make some remarks about working as the editor of a digital scholarly journal at FUSE 2015, the annual gathering of the Forum for Undergraduate Student Editors.  You can check out my livetweeting here, as well as a link to my slides.  The gist:  moving a scholarly journal from print-only to digital presents some challenges as we seek to meet the needs of readers and authors, but also new opportunities for collaboration, conversation, and community.  What if we think of the editor as a mentor, an advocate, and a steward — rather than simply a gatekeeper?
