Scholarly Editing: Fostering Communities of Recovery (Part 1)

April 4 11:00 am 12:00 pm EDT

Scholarly Editing is an open-access, peer-reviewed annual that fosters multiple communities of recovery. The journal seeks to amplify contributions from and about Black, Latinx, and Indigenous peoples; Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders; women; LGBTQ+ individuals; and peoples and cultures of the Global South. A public-facing publication platform, the journal welcomes contributions from all custodians of knowledge, including academics from all disciplines and at any career stage, K-12 teachers and students, community groups, collectors, and local genealogists. In addition to textual scholarship theory and praxis, we welcome interviews, oral histories, creative works of “rememory,” and the decolonizing of artistic works, archives, records, and editions for the discoverability of underrepresented stories and artifacts. 

In a two-part, recorded event series, two of Scholarly Editing’s editors and two of its contributing authors explored the nature and impact of the journal’s expanding content and communities of journal editors, readers, contributors, and genres. They also discussed the role of art, poetry, and fiction as a lens for recovery work.

In this first part, which was originally held on April 4, 2024, Co-Editor in Chief Noelle Baker introduced the journal’s philosophy and infrastructure, and discussed how these components have been essential to cultivating communities of recovery. Following, the Artist Marcia X shared their art with attendees, discussing how their recovery work evolved as a result of engaging with the Scholarly Editing community.
