Art of Acquisitions Hangout: Dessert First: Acquiring with Rights Deals in Mind

A translation rights deal can feel like the cherry on top of a successful publication. But if your list is heavy on international content, might those deals be something to plan for rather than hope for? What can be done to improve our chances and how early can we really start to think about it? This panel gathers three international rights managers to discuss the feasibility and considerations of acquiring with foreign rights deals in mind.

Panelists: Rebecca Bengoechea, Senior International Rights Manager, Princeton University Press; Angelica Lopez-Torres, International Rights Manager, University of Texas Press; and Jennifer Schaper, Books Sales and International Rights Manager, Duke University Press

Moderator: Zack Gresham, Acquisitions Editor, Vanderbilt University Press
