"Scholarly Publishing at the Crossroads: How Did We Get Here, and What are the Ways Forward?"

Jerome E. Singerman (PhD, Harvard) is the senior humanities editor at the University of Pennsylvania Press. Please join us on Nov. 14 from noon to 1:30 p.m. for an overview and conversation about the history of American university presses; how a conjunction of various forces has led to a huge, if crisis-driven, increase in the number of books published by university presses over the past four decades; why structural change seems inevitable; and what strengths of the old system we need to preserve and what pitfalls we need to avoid.

Refreshments will be served. 

Additional Opportunities on Nov. 15:

Graduate students and postdocs: Please join our guest for coffee and an informal conversation about converting your dissertation into a book.

Faculty: Please reserve a dedicated, one-on-one consultation with our guest to discuss your book project.
