University Press Roundup

Welcome to our weekly roundup of the best articles from the blogs of academic publishers! As always, if you particularly enjoy something or think that we missed an important post, please let us know in the comments. (And look back at our University Press Roundup Manifesto to see why we do this post every Friday.)

Women’s history was the major theme of university press posts this week, which was a confluence of Women’s History Month, Women’s History Week, and International Women’s Day. Beacon Broadside Press, Harvard University Press, Yale University Press, and Duke University Press, among others, compiled reading lists for the occasion. The NYU Press, following up on a similar post on women in the legal profession that we featured last week, had a piece by Tracy A. Thomas, Professor of Law at University of Akron, about the pioneering professional presence of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. And at the Stanford University Press blog Kathrin Zippel, Associate Professor of Sociology at Norheastern University, wrote about how the increasingly ‘global nature’ of higher education in recent years has proved very important to advancing opportunities for women working in STEM fields.

A few other lists of note popped up in the press world this week: first, the University of California Press featured a list of suggested books and movies to properly experience and understand the film noir genre. At the Oxford University Press blog Peter Gillever, editor of the academic’s favorite Oxford English Dictionary, wrote a two-part post (1, 2) on Ten Things You May Not Know About the OED, featuring industrial espionage, ‘pestilential’ working conditions, and J.R.R. Tolkien.

From the grab-bag of the eye-catching and the odd: the Cornell University Press featured an interview with Cambridge professor Mark De Rond, and excerpts from his new book Doctors at War: Life and Death in a Field Hospital, which the press describes as ‘a modern non-fiction update to M*A*S*H.’ The University Press of Florida hosted a guest post by Catherine J. Golden, ‘A Victorianist’s Take on the Graphic Novel,’ about the intriguing parallels between 19th-century serials and illustrated books, on the one hand, and modern graphic novels on the other. And at the University of Chicago Press blog, Herb Childress wrote about how his being a first-generation student who became a professor was a process that was “truly an immigration, an exchange of one citizenship for another.”

Thanks for reading! As always, we hope that you enjoyed the links. Please let us know what you think in the comments!
