Publishing visits Leipzig Book Fair
Between 17th and 21st March 2006, staff and students from the publishing department visited Leipzig. Staff (Angus Phillips, Steve Ball, Jane Potter and Kelvin Smith) were there for the development of the European Master in Publishing with our partners at HTWK Leipzig, Paris and Ljubljana, and Kelvin Smith was interviewed at the Leipzig Book Fair about the European Master as part of a student-led publicity project.
Also visiting the fair were a group of our undergraduate students, who spent three days with their counterparts at the HTWK. Marie Lomax and Lucie Barnes, two of the group who had played a key role in the recent visit of Paris students to Oxford, were this time on the receiving end of some "wonderful hospitality". They were able to make comparisons between the two courses, and Lucie found the students' attitude to the publishing industry "inspirationally professional and committed". We all hope that such visits can be repeated in the future.
