Are you curious about new forms of digital scholarship? Interested in learning how to get a project off the ground? Wondering what other university presses are doing?
Join us for a new webinar series, co-produced by Brown University, Emory University, and the AUPresses Digital Publishing and Library Relations Committees. The series will showcase and explore enhanced and interactive digital books that have been published by or are forthcoming from members of AUPresses, often in collaboration with stakeholders at the authors’ home institutions. Each 75-minute episode will highlight the workflows and collaborations behind the making of an interactive or otherwise enhanced digital book by bringing together members of one project team—typically including the author, acquisitions editor, and key development, production, and marketing professionals—to share their stories and answer questions.
The first session will feature Furnace and Fugue, which was developed by Brown University’s Center for Digital Scholarship and published by the University of Virginia Press. The discussion will focus especially on the experiences and perspectives of press staff involved: Tara Nummedal, co-editor of Furnace and Fugue, Professor of History and Italian, Brown University; Allison Levy, Digital Scholarship Editor, Center for Digital Scholarship, Brown University; Crystal Brusch, Designer for Online Publications, Center for Digital Scholarship, Brown University; Eric Brandt, Assistant Director, Editor in Chief and Humanities Editor, University of Virginia Press; Nadine Zimmerli, Editor, History and Social Sciences, University of Virginia Press; Morgan Myers, Senior Project Editor, University of Virginia Press; and Jason Coleman, Marketing and Sales Director, University of Virginia Press. The session will by hosted by Sara Jo Cohen (Senior Acquisitions Editor, University of Michigan Press) and Sarah McKee (Senior Associate Director for Publishing, Bill and Carol Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry at Emory University).
