SST 295-06 - Special Topic: Sustainable Journal Publishing

4 credits (Spring)
Cross-listed as: HUM 295-02 . During 2014-2015, the Center for Prairie Studies founded Rootstalk, a multimedia interdisciplinary online journal examining cultural and natural aspects for the prairie region. Building on that success, students will learn editorial skills as they prepare the journal’s third issue and additionally will join instructors, Grinnell alumni from the publishing world, and Development Office staff to research models of publishing sustainability. We will explore grant writing, fundraising, subscription models, advertising, and more. The goal: to make Rootstalk self-supporting within three years.

Prerequisite: Second-year standing.
Instructor: Andelson, Baechtel
