Project MUSE - Cornell University Press Books Available Open Access on MUSE
"Project MUSE, in collaboration with Cornell University Press, is pleased to announce the digital, fully-open-access availability of seven classic titles from the Press’ distinguished catalog, on the Project MUSE platform. Funded via a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ (NEH) Humanities Open Book Program, the seven out-of-print titles – none previously available electronically – were carefully selected with input from subject specialists at the Cornell University Library for their enduring scholarly impact.  “We are thrilled to make these seven classic titles openly accessible for the first time to the global scholarly community on Project MUSE,” said Dean Smith, Director of Cornell University Press. “MUSE will enable us to maximize discovery and dissemination on an established platform that is embracing new models for hosting open access scholarship.” “These first open books from Cornell University Press reflect a long-standing legacy of publishing classic scholarship in German Studies and Slavic Studies,” said Brett Bobley, Director of the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities. “We are pleased that the titles are accessible and open for the next generation of scholars.”"

The Dark Mountain Project
"The Dark Mountain Project is a network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilisation tells itself. We see that the world is entering an age of ecological collapse, material contraction and social and political unravelling, and we want our cultural responses to reflect this reality rather than denying it. The Project grew out of a feeling that contemporary literature and art were failing to respond honestly or adequately to the scale of our entwined ecological, economic and social crises. We believe that writing and art have a crucial role to play in coming to terms with this reality, and in questioning the foundations of the world in which we find ourselves."
