Scholarly publishing and the Embassy of India
How can embassies support scholarly publishing? In quite a few ways! By its very nature academic publishing is an international pursuit, so embassies and university presses end up at the same intersection of culture and diplomacy often enough. Last Friday it was my pleasure to join hosts from the Embassy of India at a lunch with some Georgetown colleagues to share ideas about these overlaps.
Last fall several of us attended a talk by an editor from Harvard University Press at the Embassy. At this lunch we thought together about other ways we can collaborate creatively.
