Drawing from the disciplines of sociology and economics, Skinner will explore both established and emergent models for system-wide transformation. Beginning with the premise that publishing today is an unstable environment, one where the key constants are change and uncertainty, Skinner will ask what we might accomplish if we shifted some of our attention from institutional concerns to system-level transformation. System-change models are being used to great effect in other arenas, and Skinner will illustrate a few of those and talk about ways that we might build bridges across all of the relevant players--publishers, libraries, content managers, and authors--in order to pursue a more stable field together.
