Antony Harwood: ‘The Business of the Literary Agent’

Publishing Research Seminar Series

Taking Place: Buckley BG01 in Semester 1 2008

Over the past hundred years, literary agents have become key intermediaries in the publishing business. They select authors, negotiate publishing and other rights deals, and manage authors' business affairs. They also frequently perform an editorial function, working closely with authors on their work before it reaches a publisher.

In this talk, Antony Harwood, a leading literary agent, will introduce the business of the literary agent, examining agents' relationships with the rest of the publishing industry, with related media industries, and with authors. He will also discuss some of the current issues in the publishing market affecting the business of the literary agent.

Dr Simone Murray: ‘Remix My Lit: Towards an Open Access Literary Culture’

Publishing Research Seminar Series, Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies in assocation with the Institute for Historical and Cultural Research

Taking Place: Buckley BG10/11 in Semester 1 2008

The publishing buzzword of 2008 has undoubtedly been ‘open access'. But typically this has referred to scientific journal publishing, only recently expanding to include humanities research. This paper goes further in asking what might an open-access literary culture look like?

Developments around online publishing, electronic-books, print on demand and digital libraries see publishers facing challenges on every side. How might publishers' traditional role as gatekeepers of literary culture be similarly usurped in an environment characterised by networked books, wiki-novels and fictional ‘rip and burn' practices? Outlining three exciting recent experiments in open-access literature, Simone Murray's illustrated talk investigates what the digital future of literature might look like, and what its impact will be on writers, publishers and readers.
