The Modern Language Association has announced the creation of an office of scholarly communication, which will expand the association's publications program and also explore new forms of scholarly communication. The office will be led by Kathleen Fitzpatrick, who is currently professor of media studies at Pomona College, and a co-founder of the digital scholarly network MediaCommons. Her next book is Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy, forthcoming from New York University Press this fall.
