Dear Willard

In case I've missed this on Humanist, forgive me, but I just found out
about the MLA report on tenure and promotion (Dec. 7, 2006). The
figures on evaluating e-articles and e-monographs in doctoral
institutions are astounding. 40.8% have no experience in evaluating
e-articles, 65.7% have no experience in evalating e-monographs. MLA
recommends a "more capacious conception of scholarship" and urges
institutions to recognize the "legitimacy of scholarship produced in
new media."



Let's thank MLA.
