How Did Academic Monograph Publishing Evolve into the Field of Intellectual Trade Books?
A Chat with Chris Hart and Kim Walker of Manchester UP
New Books Network 2023
Chris Hart, Director of Sales and Marketing, and Kim Walker, Director of Trade Publishing at Manchester University Press join Avi to discuss how MUP and other university publishers have changed their model over the last decade and put a major focus on trade publishing over the classic niche academic monograph. We also discuss how being the only academic publisher in Northern England forms a big part of the identity and content published by the press.
