Roundtable – The State of the Book in Humanities


The State of the Book in Humanities – Roundtable, Monday, February 5, 5-6:30 PM

The Society of Fellows is inviting both representatives from academic presses and academics with experience publishing books with both academic and commercial presses. By bringing together these different perspectives, we seek to come to a better understanding of the value of the book in the humanities, the challenges it is facing as a format, and what its future may be.
