PUB5006 Issues in Publishing and Technology

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Arts
School or Department : School of Humanities and Communication


The extent of the changes in social economic and cultural life that are likely to flow from the convergence of computing and communications is only beginning to be realised. Publishing is an industry where change is already apparent. The ultimate effect of new technologies on publishing is still unclear, but it is important that graduates aspiring to enter the industry are able to understand how and why its future may be different from its past. This course, which will be offered through the Internet, will give students an understanding of the changing nature of technology and publishing practice.
