Knowledge Without Walls: The ethos of openness in research and teaching
Presenter(s): Shelly Eversley (English & Women’s Studies, Baruch College), Matthew K. Gold (English & Digital Humanities, CUNY GC), Michael Smith (Communications Technology, York College)

Openness, in this sense might point to: authors’ protection of readers’ right to share work via a Creative Commons license; Web 2.0 affordances that invite readers to comment or annotate critical texts; teachers’ creation of free course materials to replace expensive textbooks and thus make education more accessible for economically burdened students.
