Senior Lecturer Maria Bonn will speak at two events this month.

On September 17 Bonn will participate in a panel discussion titled, “The Future of Scholarly Communication.” The event will be cohosted by GSLIS, the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities, the Scholarly Commons of the University Library, and the Spurlock Museum. Discussants will also include Kathleen Fitzpatrick, director of scholarly communication for the Modern Language Association and visiting research professor of English at New York University; and Seth Denbo, director of scholarly communication and digital initiatives for the American Historical Association. This event is free and open to the public.

A few days later Bonn will present the closing lecture of a Humanities Without Walls all-consortium workshop that will be held on September 19-20 in Chicago. The workshop will serve as a launch event for the Global Midwest research initiative. Bonn will copresent “Innovative Opportunities for Publishing Outcomes” with John Wilkin, dean of libraries and university librarian for Illinois. GSLIS is a key intellectual and infrastructural partner for Humanities Without Walls, a cooperative effort of fifteen research universities to foster collaborative research, teaching, and scholarship in the humanities.

At GSLIS, Bonn teaches courses on the role of libraries in scholarly communication and publishing. Her research interests include publishing, scholarly communication, networked communication, and the economics of information. She currently serves as editor for the Journal of Electronic Publishing.

Prior to her teaching appointment at GSLIS, Bonn served as the associate university librarian for publishing at the University of Michigan Library, with responsibility for publishing and scholarly communications initiatives, including the University of Michigan Press and the Scholarly Publishing Office. She received a bachelor's degree from the University of Rochester, master's and doctoral degrees in American Literature from SUNY Buffalo, and a master's in information and library science from the University of Michigan.
