On 19th October in London, Birkbeck College are hosting a seminar on 'the future of art history publishing':

We are at a turning point in the publishing of art historical research. To what extent is the existing model of art history publishing sustainable? What does the future hold for the illustrated scholarly print journal and monograph? How is art history responding to the push for online open access publishing? How do copyright and licensing restrictions and costs affect what can be published and in what form? This session brings together print and online publishers and editors, an intellectual property expert and academics to think about the way forward.

* Natalie Foster, Routledge

* Bernard Horrocks, Intellectual Property Manager, Tate

* Steve Edwards, Birkbeck

* Chair: Leslie Topp, Birkbeck

Sadly, there it appears there will be nobody speaking from an Open Access poit of view. But if you want to go along and challenge Tate's intellectual property manager, tickets are free, and available here. Ask him why Tate refuses to put anything other than low-res images on its website, and why they don't know if they actually make a profit from image licensing.
