Begin the blog tour at Columbia University Press. Then head to Georgetown University Press for a discussion of how they give their readers the tools they need to have a global reach themselves through foreign language learning materials, international career guides, and international affairs titles. Next Indiana University Press discusses their Mellon-funded Framing the Global project, which supports scholarly research and publication that will develop and disseminate new knowledge, approaches, and methods in the field of global research. From book translations to international marketing and the growth of Project MUSE into many different nations, the Johns Hopkins University Press can't help but thing beyond the borders of the United States. Next is New York University Press, where Chip Rossetti, managing editor of the Library of Arabic Literature (LAL), will discuss the new LAL series, an ambitious international project which comes out of a partnership between NYU Press and NYU Abu Dhabi. At Princeton University Press, Director Peter Dougherty writes about the importance of foreign language translations to the future of university press economic health and fulfillment of their missions. University of Wisconsin Press offers a post by director Sheila Leary profiling the publishing career of Jan Vansina, one of the founders of the field of African history (rather than colonial history). And finally, to end this great tour, Yale University Press's Ivan Lett writes on recent transatlantic collaboration of US-UK marketing initiatives for globally published titles, series, and digital products. We hope you enjoyed these great posts. The complete schedule is available here. To finish up University Press Week, why not head to your local bookstore and pick up a few great university press titles?!
