As part of University Press Week, Fordham University Press and Columbia University Press will be sponsoring a panel called “How to Publish with a University Press.” This exciting event will be hosted by Book Culture at 536 West 112th Street on November 17th at 7:00pm. Panelists include Fordham’s own Corey McEleney, Fordham University Press’s Will Cerbone, and Columbia University’s Gauri Viswanathan. These panelists have experience and insight to share from the world of university press publishing. Fordham University Press will publish Corey McEleney’s newest book, Futile Pleasures: Early Modern Literature and the Limits of Utility in 2017. Viswanathan has published multiple titles with Columbia University Press, including Masks of Conquest: Literary Study and British Rule in India: Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition. Jennifer Crewe, Associate Provost and Director of Columbia University Press, will moderate the panel.
Topics up for discussion include, “the role of the university press in book publishing today, the difference between university presses and trade publishers, what writing for a university press means for one’s academic career, and everything from how to submit a proposal to what to expect during the publishing process.” For anyone interested in scholarly publishing or is thinking about publishing with a university press, this panel event is sure to offer valuable insight and advice.
