University Press Week Blog Tour – The Global Reach of the University Presses

Posted by: Susan Mai

It’s the final day of the University Press Week Blog Tour! We end this year’s tour on the theme of the global reach of the university presses. Several Presses weigh in:

Columbia University Press reflects on the international reach of its list and distributed presses.

Georgetown University Press discusses giving readers the tools they need to have a global reach themselves through foreign language learning materials, international career guides, and international affairs titles.

Indiana University Press sponsoring editor Rebecca Tolen blogs about IUP's Mellon-funded Framing the Global project. This project 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 think beyond the borders of the United States. JHUP senior manuscript editor, Michele Callaghan, shares her thoughts. 

Chip Rossetti, managing editor of the Library of Arabic Literature (LAL) at New York University Press, writes about the new LAL series, an ambitious international project which comes out of a partnership between NYU Press and NYU Abu Dhabi.

Peter Dougherty, Director of Princeton University Press, reflects on the importance of foreign language translations to the future of university press economic health and fulfillment of our missions.

University of Wisconsin Press director Sheila Leary profiles the publishing career of Jan Vansina, one of the founders of the field of African history (rather than colonial history). His innovative seven books with the University of Wisconsin Press from the 1960s to the present have continually broken new ground, influencing the historiography of Africa and several related disciplines.

Ivan Lett, Online Marketing Manager for Yale University Press, writes about recent transatlantic collaboration of US-UK marketing initiatives for YUP globally published titles, series, and digital products.
