Today is the final day of the university press blog tour and the theme is appropriately Follow Friday. The six presses featured today all interpret the theme a little differently. University of Illinois Press has a post discussing the emerging topics and authors in their Geopolitics of Information series. University of Minnesota Press shares a post by author John Hartigan about the ways in which he uses social media to enhance scholarly connections and establish social-media conversations with regard to his research. University of Nebraska Press also looks at social media, particularly how university presses can use it to deepen communication and relationships. NYU Press features an upcoming project, the website for their book, Keywords for American Cultural Studies (Second Edition). Island Press looks at what new fields and scholars their editors are paying attention to. And Columbia University Press highlights their fabulous Friday series, the University Press Roundup, and the role of university press blogs in promoting scholarship to the general public.
We hope you’ve enjoyed all these great University Press week posts.
