KU Libraries, The Commons to host presentation by author Kathleen Fitzpatrick on Jan. 27

Friday, December 11, 2020

The University of Kansas Libraries and The Commons will host a keynote presentation by Kathleen Fitzpatrick, author of “Generous Thinking: A Radical Approach to Saving the University,” on Wednesday, January 27, 9:30 a.m., via Zoom

In her book, Fitzpatrick urges academics to think critically, constructively, and generously — a mode of engagement that she describes as listening over speaking, ​community over individualism and collaboration over competition.  

Fitzpatrick is director of Digital Humanities and professor of English at Michigan State University. She is also the author of “Generous Thinking: The University and the Public Good” and "Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy." Fitzpatrick serves on the editorial and advisory boards of numerous publications and is vice-president/president-elect of the Association for Computers and the Humanities. 

Those who plan to attend may register online at rockcha.lk/Fitzpatrick. This event is free and open to the public.
