ACLS Project Manager Sarah McKee Interviewed on Publishing Digital Multimedia Scholarship
Sarah McKee, ACLS Project Manager for Publishing Initiatives, is interviewed with Allison Levy, Digital Scholarship Editor at Brown University, in a H-Net article on how new partnerships between universities and university presses can strengthen humanities infrastructure and encourage innovation. The article was published as part of Feeding the Elephant, a forum for conversations about scholarly communications in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
Active collaborations that bring together resources—especially human expertise—from authors’ home institutions and publishers strike me as a great untapped possibility. Publishing workflows are often quite stable and fixed, but a willingness to experiment together can yield meaningful outcomes, as demonstrated by the eight projects showcased in our white paper.

McKee and Levy published “Multimodal Digital Monographs: Content, Collaboration, Community,” a white paper on the current and future landscape of digital scholarly publishing, in June 2022. McKee joined ACLS in November 2022 as part of the organization’s work to support a healthy ecosystem for the creation and dissemination of humanistic scholarship across disciplines and institutions. Previously, she administered Digital Publishing in the Humanities, sponsored by the Mellon Foundation and based at Emory University’s Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry.
