Publishing’s First Podcast

The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies' first podcast is now online!

Laura Atkins' session in the Publishing Research Seminar Series, 'Editorial Reflections: Cultural Expression and Children's Publishing', is now accessible to everyone as a podcast, along with an accompanying Powerpoint presentation.  In the talk, Laura Atkins reflects on her experiences editing multicultural picture books, and discusses her research on how the publication process has affected children's books written by non-white authors in the UK.

The podcast was recorded and put online by Chris Jennings, Course Leader for the MA in Interactive Media Publishing.  It is the first in a series of occasional podcasts from the Centre, and allows our international community of alumni, industry contacts and others interested in publishing to attend sessions in the virtual environment.

The Publishing Research Seminar is a series of lively, engaging contributions by speakers to the Centre, which is open to the public.  Further speakers this semester are Richard Charkin (Chief Executive of Macmillan) and John Mitchinson (The QI Bookshop, Oxford).  Not every talk will be available as a podcast, but through this exciting step, we hope to allow visitors to our website access to the activity of the Centre, and to archive some of those activities electronically.
