The issue is organized around the theme “Reimagining the University Press” and guest edited by Phil Pochoda, Director of the University of Michigan Press. “In the broadest sense, these essays can be read as attempts to discover how or even whether the presses will continue to play a valued leadership role in scholarly publishing, or if the most powerful publishing wave since Gutenberg will leave the presses stranded on an abandoned shore,”Pochoda writes in the Editor’s Note>.
