Publishing in an Age of Change is a collaboration between three of Australia’s leading literary incubators: Meanjin, Overland and if:book, that seeks to drive rather than simply react to the debate surrounding the digitization of communication.
Since 2010 Meanland has hosted and published events and articles that tackle the impact of digital media, shifting intellectual property rights and economic change on publishers, writers and readers. In that time we’ve heard from some of the foremost thinkers and writers working in this field including: McKenzie Wark, Chris Meade, Cory Doctorow and Kate Eltham.
