GUP August 2020 Newsletter

September 7, 2020 / 5 mins read

Welcome to the inaugural monthly newsletter from Georgetown University Press! We value you as a part of our community and want to share new initiatives, news about our books, occasional offers, and great programming with original content to engage you in the work of our authors who inspire readers to know the world better.

You may have heard that we recently announced a new publishing program in global business and the global economy led by Senior Acquisitions Editor Hilary Claggett. You can meet Hilary and learn more about her vision for this new list in her video message below.

We have also launched a weekly live-streamed speaker series called “Books for a Better World” featuring GUP Director Al Bertrand in conversation with Georgetown University faculty and GUP authors. Join us at noon on Thursdays or listen in later to recordings available on YouTube and Facebook as well as our companion podcast (available on most major podcast channels)

We hope you will be a part of a GUP community in conversation about the work we publish by authors whose ideas illuminate and respond to the world’s most difficult questions and shape our collective future.
