From AAUPwiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Our book acquisitions at university presses need to do many things for many constituencies, it seems—reaching sales quotas, moving lists and scholarly fields forward, establishing relationships with other institutional entities, and promoting the press and university brands. This panel offers the opportunity to hear from acquisitions editors about the books that they deem "the best" results of their efforts. Each panelist will focus on a single book and its process, and we'll also save time for a conversation with the audience about best practices for press-wide communication about what makes a successful title.

Chair: Larin McLaughlin, Senior Acquisitions Editor, University of Illinois Press

Panelists: Marguerite Avery, Senior Acquisitions Editor, The MIT Press

William Frucht, Executive Editor, Yale University Press

Craig Gill, Assistant Director/Editor-in-Chief, University Press of Mississippi

Christie Henry, Editorial Director, Sciences and Social Sciences, The University of Chicago Press

Charles Rankin, Associate Director/Editor-in-Chief, University of Oklahoma Press

Ken Wissoker, Editorial Director, Duke University Press
