    Abstract:
    This essay is partly a response + riposte to Johanna Drucker's Jan. 2014 essay in the Los Angeles Review of Books, "Pixel Dust: Illusions of Innovation in Scholarly Publishing," and partly a plea for the University, and the Humanities, along with their publishing "arms," to be refashioned, not as sites of cultural Authority from which Knowledge "trickles down" into Society, but as sites of care: where we would care for ourselves, care for each other, and take care of the public commons, not in order to maintain its borders and authority, filtering what is allowed in and what is allowed out and to whom, but rather, to fashion this shared (and always precarious, always vulnerable, always convalescent) commons as a house of hospitality, an invitation to all, to the friends and the strangers, those with papers and those without papers.
