One of the highlights of University Press Week is the blog tour, in which presses and bookstores celebrate the work of university presses with fascinating and diverse posts, with a different theme each day. Today’s theme is “The People in Our Neighborhood.” Begin today at Northwestern University Press. Rutgers University celebrated their 250th anniversary, and Rutgers University Press played a large role in the festivities—replete with fun photos. Check out Fordham University Press for another interesting post. The University of Toronto Press publishing blog features their history editor, who recounts her experiences running lectures at a nearby Jewish Community Centre in Toronto on Why History Matters Today, which showcases a string of their higher education authors. Their sister blog, University of Toronto Press Journals, spotlights one of their journal editors and the work they are doing in their own communities related to the journal. Seminary Co-op Bookstores shares a curated book list of favorite University Press titles from Haun Saussy, faculty member at the University of Chicago faculty and an author with both Columbia University Press and Fordham University Press. Athabasca University Press features members of their editorial committee. Be sure to return here tomorrow to continue the tour!
