We recently uploaded this article to UScholar Works. It’s by Elijah Millgram, Professor of Philosophy here at the University of Utah. The article takes as its topic Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morality. Written in 1887, Nietzsche’s Genealogy is considered by many scholars to be one of his greatest works, and an important work in the ethical canon. What Millgram lays out step-by-step in his article is a new way of reading the Genealogy. Briefly, Millgram’s new reading of the work postulates that in his Geneology Nietzsche presents his position on the origin of moral values in precisely the way he seems to be condemning in the work; and that he does this in order to show the effectiveness of that which he is condemning. In Millgram’s words, “The Genealogy of Morals is a very sophisticated critique of morality—for intellectuals, and that is because it is, at the same time, an exposé of the intellectuals themselves.”
Expanding Reach and Increasing Impact
Open Access Week, October 19-23, 2009, will provide students, staff, faculty and members of the public a chance to explore new ways of disseminating, accessing and re-using the results of scholarly and creative research. In the age of the Web, information is abundant and attention is scarce. The fewer the barriers, the greater the likelihood of gaining readers and citations as well as advancing knowledge. Open Access scholarship is digital, online and free of charge to readers. In many cases, it is free of most copyright and licensing restrictions, and can therefore be re-used in a variety of ways. It is a dissemination strategy that promotes rather than restricts access. Authors and creators can learn how to increase innovation by offering the path of least resistance to their work and gain the attention of readers, viewers and listeners. Administrators can learn ways for the University to raise its profile and impact both funding levels and community engagement. And all scholars can discover means for fostering new growth, advancing their discipline, and attracting new learners to their area of expertise.

Monday, October 19
Keynote address by Dr. John Willinsky
11:00 am-12:00 pm, Marriott Library Gould Auditorium
John Willinsky is currently on the faculty of the Stanford School of Education where he teaches courses on knowledge systems, access to knowledge and scholarly communication. He directs the Public Knowledge Project which focuses on extending access to knowledge through online sources such as Open Journal Systems (OJS), Open Conference Systems and Open Monograph Press (OMP). Dr. Willinsky’s research centers on both analyzing and altering scholarly publishing practices to understand whether this body of knowledge might yet become more of a public resource for learning and deliberation. He is the author of Empire of Words: The Reign of the OED, Learning to Divide the World: Education at Empire’s End, which won Outstanding Book Awards from the American Educational Research Association and History of Education Society , as well as the more recent titles, Technologies of Knowing, If Only We Knew: Increasing the Public Value of Social Science Research and The Access Principle: The Case for Open Access to Research and Scholarship — the latter of which has won the 2006 Blackwell Scholarship Award and the Computers and Composition Distinguished Book Award.
