Janneke Adema is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Postdigital Cultures at Coventry University. In her research, she explores the future of scholarly communications and experimental forms of knowledge production, where her work incorporates processual and performative publishing, radical open access, scholarly poethics, media studies, book history, cultural studies, and critical theory. She explores these issues in depth in her various publications, but also by supporting a variety of scholar-led, not-for-profit publishing projects, including the Radical Open Access Collective, Open Humanities Press, and Post Office Press (POP). You can follow her research, as it develops, on openreflections.wordpress.com.

Vision Statement

My research focuses on the material-discursive practices of scholarly research and communication. In my work I critically analyse alternative models of scholarly communication, such as Open Access publishing, and living, liquid and remixed books, publishing experiments that try to challenge ideas of authorship, the fixed text, copyright and originality, as well as the system of material production surrounding the book. I try to engage with these new forms both in theory and in practice, where I perform my own research in an alternative, digital, and open way, by publishing it online as it develops (on open reflections), and by experimenting with different, remixed, multimodal and multiplatform versions of my work. In this way I want to rethink the way we do research and how we publish it to avoid uncritically repeating what have become our dominant scholarly practices.
