#RaiseUP: How University Presses Work for Overlooked Authors & Ideas

7:00pm EST

October 1, 2020


In a time when information moves at faster speeds than ever before, it’s critical that books about the most important events of the day are nurtured, championed, and made widely available. Join staff and authors from the university press community to discuss how they strive to elevate disciplines, subjects, and authors that bring new perspectives, ideas, and voices to readers around the globe. This event is part of the fall programming for University Press Week (November 9-15), which this year has the theme of “Raise UP.”

Panelists Include: Fred Nachbaur, Director, Fordham University Press, Pamela Lewis, Author, Teaching While Black: A New Voice on Race and Education in New York City, Ilene Kalish, Executive Editor, NYU Press, Jane Ward, Author, The Tragedy of Heterosexuality, Eric Schwartz, Editorial Director, Columbia University Press, Lance M. Freeman, Author, A Haven and a Hell: The Ghetto in Black America
