Care of the Self, Open Access, and Alternative Career Paths in the (More) Public Humanities @ Instruction & Training 1575 – UCSB Library

Eileen Joy and Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei, co-directors of punctum books, will discuss their training and careers as scholars in the humanities and social sciences, working both within and outside of traditional university spaces. Joy and van Gerven Oei — who jointly hold multiple graduate degrees in English, Creative Writing, Medieval Literature, Music Composition, Linguistics, Media & Communication Studies, and Philosophy — will share their reasons for choosing to run an independent, academic press together while also pursuing their individual scholarly and art-practice projects.

Presenters: Eileen A. Fradenberg Joy, Punctum Books and UCSB Library; and Vincent van Gerven Oei, punctum books and UCSB Library
