About Paul G. St-Pierre

I'm the science collections librarian at the University of Guelph, and a 5th year doctoral candidate at Western. The working title of my dissertation is "The Political Economy of Scholarly Communication: A Critique of Open Access Publishing." I'm using Gramsci's theory of hegemony, Lukács’ notion of reification, and public goods theory in order to critique the increasing commodification of OA publishing and suggest other ways to look at scholarly communication that privilege human relationships over commodity fetishism.
