‘Publishing: Art or Money?’, Andrew Franklin, Publisher and Managing Director, Profile Books

Publishing Research Seminar Series

Taking Place: Buckley BG10/11 in Semester 1 2007

Is publishing about culture or commerce? Should publishers prioritise the dissemination of art, information, and education, or the making of money?  Who, ultimately, should publishers be responsible to - the general public, shareholders or the aesthetic good?

In this seminar, Andrew Franklin will discuss these issues, drawing on his own experience working for a small independent and a large corporate publisher.

Ghostwriting

OPUS event Thursday 27 September

Oxford Brookes University, Gipsy Lane Campus

Step into the shadowy world of the ghostwriter, and look at the processes behind the creation of ghostwritten book projects. Is ghostwriting, as the Observer recently claimed, the ‘future of the book trade'? How prevalent is the practice of ghostwriting? What skills make a good ghostwriter, and how do publishers and agents manage those skills? To what extent is ghostwriting part of an editorial continuum, in which all editors routinely take part?

‘John Calder: A Life in Publishing’: Professor Alistair McCleery

Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies

Publishing Research Seminar

Taking Place: Buckley BG10 in Semester 2 2007

The publisher and bookseller John Calder cut his teeth in the 1950s and 60s, publishing avant-garde, experimental and controversial work from some of the twentieth century's leading writers, including Samuel Beckett, Marguerite Duras, Eugene Ionesco, Henry Miller and Williams Burroughs.  Always valuing the intellect above the wallet, never afraid to shock, and still publishing and bookselling today, John Calder has led a fascinating life in publishing.  Calder presents a very different mode of publishing to that of the multimedia conglomerates we have grown used to in recent years.

‘Touching Paper: the Post-Internet Bookshop’: John Mitchinson

Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies

Publishing Research Seminar

Taking Place: Buckley BG11 in Semester 1 2006

As the tail of the online inventory of books grows ever longer, what is the point of bricks-and-mortar bookshops? If we can choose our own favourites online, and often pay less for them, do we really need vast book emporia on our high streets carrying only a fraction of what's available? At QI we think it's time for a new model bookshop. Books are important. Every human activity finds its correlative in a book. Books change lives. They are tactile, moveable portals to an infinity of new worlds. Instead of dull warehouses, bookshops should become high street academies, enriching people with knowledge and leading the campaign to make the world more interesting. The adventure starts here...

‘The Elephant and the Rat: Innovation in Publishing’: Richard Charkin

Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies

Publishing Research Seminar

Taking Place: Buckley BG11 in Semester 1 2006

Global publishing is dominated by a handful of very large conglomerate companies: the ‘elephants'.  How do such big beasts respond to changing consumer behaviour and technologies?  How do big organisations remain innovative in the face of competition?  And how can they continue to create and sustain successful new business models?  Drawing on examples including the controversial Macmillan New Writing, Richard Charkin will address these challenges, asking how the elephant can make itself as fleet-footed and successful as the rat.
