University of Illinois Press Welcomes New Director

Although we are a few days late, we have a special announcement regarding our new press director!

The UI journals division is pleased to welcome Laurie Matheson as new director of the Press. Laurie’s work in book acquisitions over nearly fourteen years has intersected with the societies and subject areas of several key journals, including Ethnomusicology, the Journal of American Folklore, The Black Music Research Journal, and more recently the Journal of Appalachian Studies. She is eager to support efforts by journals and books staff to expand cross marketing and other collaborations, building on strong subject area synergy between journals and books content and audiences.

Congratulations, Laurie!
