University presses are businesses in campus environments—often one of the few businesses on campus—and we can offer real world business experience to students. When we think of interns, we often picture undergraduate English majors seeking their first opportunity to explore a future career in publishing. But what about graduate students and postdocs? Join this panel to learn about experiences in running graduate student internships, as well as best practices for internship programs generally. The goal is to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship for both press and intern. We will solicit questions from the audience and encourage a highly interactive roundtable discussion.
Chair: Jane Bunker, Director, Northwestern University Press
