It is University Press Week!

As a founding member, we are proud to celebrate 75 years of the American Association of University Presses and the contributions University Presses make to culture, academia, and an informed society with the first annual University Press Week (November 11-17, 2012).

Events this year include:

  • An online exhibit called Fine Print* (*and Digital!). A gallery of books, journals, digital collections, and reference works exemplifying the work of AAUP members.
  • A blog tour, featuring writings from the perspectives of 26 member presses and their authors.
  • Influence maps highlighting the geographical spread of University Presses, both in their physical locations and in their subjects.

Check back with us Wednesday when we take our turn hosting the blog tour with a post by  folklorist Stephen Wade on the value of “humane scholarship” through the work of University Presses.
