On Wednesday 8th February, the Open Library of Humanities and the University of Huddersfield co-hosted a party at Birkbeck, University of London to celebrate the launch of the OLH's new Journal of Embodied Research. The journal is the first peer-reviewed, open access, academic journal to focus specifically on the innovation and dissemination of embodied knowledge through the medium of video. With an editorial advisory board drawn from across the arts and humanities, it aims to pioneer the scholarly video article as a new form supporting development of diverse embodied research projects.
