KEN WISSOKER TALK E V E N T S


Duke University Press has published more than a doz- en books by UC Davis faculty, so who better to address


the future of publishing than Duke University Press’s editorial director? As editor-in-chief of one of the most renowned and intellectually innovative academic presses, Ken Wissoker spoke at a Fall 2011 Humanities Institute event, offering an engaging and timely pre- sentation titled “Writing and Publishing in a Time of Media Transformation.” Faculty and graduate students from a host of disciplines peppered Wissoker with questions about the viability and vitality of traditional academic publishing in a world saturated by electronic alternatives. Wissoker made the case for the continued relevance and necessity of academic monographs that break new ground as they reach readers in their own fields and beyond. A testament to the interdisciplinar- ity of Duke University Press’s list, Wissoker’s talk was cosponsored by a broad cross-section of departments, programs, and centers, including the departments of English, History, and Anthropology; the Consortium for Women and Research; the Hemispheric Institute on the Americas; the American Studies Program; Science and Technology Studies; Cinema and Technocultural Studies, and the Office of Graduate Studies.
