AUPresses Webinar: Social Media Beyond Marketing

Hosted by the Professional Development Committee and the Faculty Outreach Committee

Social media offers many opportunities for UP professionals to connect with colleagues in the industry, as well as with scholars in the disciplines where we publish. They offer space for us to demystify the work we do, both by sharing info and resources about academic publishing and by presenting a more informal side of ourselves than may come across in email chains or “About Me” pages. In this webinar, we’ll chat about how to use social media platforms from LinkedIn to TikTok to the platform formerly known as Twitter to build our professional networks, promote our press’s work, and educate a broader audience about what we do in UP publishing.

Moderators: Jenny Keegan, Faculty Outreach Committee, Acquisitions Editor at Louisiana State University Press; Bethany Wasik, Professional Development Committee, Assistant Editorial Director at Cornell University Press

Panelists: Rebecca Colesworthy (she/her), Senior Acquisitions Editor at the SUNY Press; Freya Gowrley (she/her), Lecturer at University of Bristol; Kishonna Gray (she/her), Associate Professor at the University of Kentucky; Ashley Kole (she/they), Social Media Coordinator at Cornell University Press.
