We all know that you cannot change the message without changing the medium. We all know that changing the medium inevitably changes the message. HASTAC’s fifth international conference, hosted this year by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, December 1-3, practices what it preaches, experimenting with an array of new forms and formats designed not just to discuss “Digital Scholarly Communication” but to explore how each of those three terms–digital, scholarly, communication–changes the others in ways that presage powerful new possibilities for higher education (both in the academy and for the general public).
