University Press Week runs from November 9-15, and the theme chosen by the Association of University Presses this year is “Raise UP”. This theme was chosen to emphasize the role that academic publishers play in elevating authors, subjects, and whole disciplines that bring new perspectives, ideas, and voices to readers around the globe. In keeping with the ideals of UP Week, Book Culture asked some staffers from around the University Press community to tell us about their work, and what they’re reading.
Summertime, but the livin' ain't easy... While we're pretty happy that 2020 is half-over, there's a whole lot more to be done for our selves, our communities, and the world. We hope you'll join us in taking some time this summer to read and reflect. To recharge and re-examine.
In keeping with tradition, we've put together our summer reading lists. Strictly for participation points--you won't be graded (we promise).
