Talk: Reflections on the University of Illinois Press at 100
Event type: Lecture

Come join UI Press staff member Julie Laut (Ph.D. 2016) to learn more about our first century. The Press was established in 1918 as a crucial part of UI President Edmund J. James’s larger vision for fostering scholarly achievement and raising the university’s international profile and academic prestige. Under the leadership of just six directors, the Press has sought to fulfill this vision, working to establish and maintain a presence both intellectual and physical on the Urbana-Champaign campus while adjusting as needed to dramatic changes in academic publishing.

Drawing on archival research and oral histories, Julie will reflect on the challenges and successes of fulfilling James’s vision with particular focus on the people and the spaces that have created and sustained the University of Illinois Press since 1918. #UIP100
