Organizer:

Part 1

Discuss the current academic/theory print publishing landscape. What kind of resources do publishers allocate for this type of publishing (print costs, author costs, editorial costs, distribution costs, translation costs, etc.)? Who does and doesn’t make money off of this type of publishing? Look at case studies from small, medium and large publishers.

Part 2
Discuss the current digital publishing landscape. What kind of (proprietary) formats are being used by the two main players in digital publishing: Amazon and Apple? How are they controlling the economy of digital publication and distribution? Are there alternative forms of distribution and other technologies that are being used/developed? What kind of resources do publishers allocate for digital publishing (development costs, author costs, editorial costs, distribution costs, translation costs etc.)? How do these resources compare to more traditional forms of publishing? Look at case studies from small, medium and large publishers if possible.

Part 3
Introduce the tools to make digital publications in a couple of different formats (epub/mobi, ibooks).

Part 4
Make a digital publication(s).

Hello Caleb,

I am Lynn Harris, one half of AND Publishing with Eva Weinmayr. I would love to attend the class but won't be in Berlin. Is there anyway I can attend virtually?

Many thanks
