Summer Days at UTP

August is almost over, and with it, summer is coming to an end. Things are busy at the offices of University of Toronto Press; new titles are being released every week and conference season is fast approaching.

Summer at UTP, however, was not filled with lazy days at the beach. Many new and exciting things happened in August; UTP attended two new conferences this month and we welcomed some new faces, including Chris Reed, as publicist. Chris organized a launch two weeks ago at the Gladstone. A well attended event, the launch for Jacquelyne Luce’s Beyond Expectation, hosted by Rachel Epstein, Coordinator of The Sherbourne Health Centre’s LGBTQ Parenting Network, was a success.

At the beginning of August, UTP attended the Academy of Management’s annual meeting in Montreal with the Rotman School of Management. Our first time at this conference, it was a great venue to showcase all the Rotman/UTP titles as well as all UTP’s other business books. UTP hosted a meet and greet with Benson Honig and Israel Drori, co-editors of Transnational and Immigrant Entrepreneurship in a Globalized World at the AOM meeting. Many conference attendees were interested in the newly released Effective Medical Leadership, by Dr. Bryce Taylor.

UTP also attended the International Association for the History of Religion conference at the University of Toronto for the first time. A week long conference with attendees from around the world, UTP was very happy to be able to display our religion titles at the conference.  Of particular interest to the delegates was Bramadat and Seljak’s Religion and Ethnicity in Canada, and Claster’s Sacred Violence.

Next stop on the UTP conference tour is the American Political Science Association annual meeting in Washington, D.C. next week. If you’re attending, be sure to stop by the booth and check out the new and newly announced political science books from UTP!
