Clark Fellow Susan Gagliardi presents “Mapping Senufo: Rethinking the Scholarly Monograph in the Era of Digital Publication.”
What might research and the publication of results look like if scholars producing them integrated decades of theories about the construction of identities and the politics of knowledge production into their work on arts of Africa once considered “traditional”? Mapping Senufo—an in-progress, collaborative, born-digital publication project that Susan Elizabeth Gagliardi initiated and now co-directs with Constantine Petridis—offers a model for joining such theories with research and publication practice. It will exemplify in its form the contingent nature of identities, art style labeling, and knowledge production.
