Ideas weren’t put on this earth to be sold, only hustled along to the next person who can make good use of them.
This week the Association of American University Presses will celebrate University Press Week—a week started by President Jimmy Carter who introduced it “in recognition of the impact, both here and abroad, of American university presses on culture and scholarship.”
Aaaand, we’re off! Today’s awesome line-up includes posts from:
+ Harvard: “My Blue Bound Loves" by Anthony Grafton
+ Duke: A guest post by Jack Halberstam
+ Stanford: Steve Levingston on why university presses matter
+ University of Georgia: Claire Bond Potter argues for UPs as sustainable presses
+ University of Missouri: Ned Stuckey-French and Bruce Miller on why we need university presses
Check ‘em out.
(And keep an eye out for Georgetown on Thursday, and yours truly on Friday!)
Next week is University Press Week! To celebrate, we’ve teamed up with the Association of American University Presses for a blog tour that explores the importance of academic publishing. Starting things off on Monday are our friends at Harvard, Duke, Stanford, University of Georgia, and University of Missouri! Get excited—and check for us on Friday!
