Congress is just over one week away and we are getting excited to make our way down to the Mattamy Centre with all the other presses and set up our book exhibit! We hope to see you some time during the week at booth 14. This year we are 5 booths wide (6 if you count our sister division UTP Distribution) so you can’t miss us.
What can you look forward to from us at Congress this year? Read on to find out.
Integration of Books and Journals
Some of you may know that we publish more than just books here at UTP. Alongside our scholarly books and course books, our journals division puts out top-quality journals across many disciplines. This year at Congress we will be displaying books and journals in the same booth, to make it that much easier for you to see all we have to offer.
We are excited to debut our collection to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial year. We have chosen a special selection of outstanding books published over the years that bear witness to the depth and breadth of the nation’s history and the diversity of its peoples. These books showcase remarkable achievements as well as uncomfortable truths in Canada’s history, from pre-Confederation to the present. This carefully curated collection includes classic works of cultural, historical, legal, and literary scholarship that have informed and shaped Canada as a nation.
A selection of these books will be showcased at Congress, and all can be ordered there or online. We are also holding a Canada 150 giveaway – stop by the booth and enter to win one of our packages.
The Slow Professor is moving along quickly! Approximately one year after the release of the hardback version of The Slow Professor, we are happy to be putting out a paperback version. The paperback version, which features a new forward by Stefan Collini, debuted a few weeks ago at the American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting and we are pleased to be taking it to quite a few conferences going forward. Buy it at Congress and receive a 25% discount.
Of course, we will also have a huge selection of our books and journals, giveaways, examination copies of our course books, and our knowledgeable editors and marketing staff as reasons to pop by the booth. See you at Congress!
