After a several year postponement while I established and led Harvard’s nascent library skunkworks, the Office for Scholarly Communication, my request for a sabbatical leave has been approved for the 2013–14 academic year. I hope to work on a variety of projects related to library and publishing issues, computational-linguistics–related projects, and teaching preparation.
My plans are to remain in the Boston area during the year but with perhaps several short external residencies at other institutions who might be interested in having me around for a couple of weeks. If your institution might be such a place — willing to provide an office, a place to crash, maybe a plane ticket — please let me know.

And while you’re at it, a plug for the Pamphlet would be most welcome too.

- language, linguistics, and computational linguistics
- pedagogy and writing
I expect that in the near term, I’ll primarily be commenting on open access issues.
I’ve avoided having a blog until now because Read the rest of this entry »
