Since its founding in 1947, the mission of the Michigan State University Press has been to be a catalyst for positive intellectual, social, and technological change through the publication of research and intellectual inquiry, making significant contributions to scholarship in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. In this podcast series, we interview MSU Press authors about their research and discuss scholarly publishing with the professionals who make it happen.
On today’s episode, we’re joined by Andrés Espinoza Agurrrto to discuss his book Salsa Consciente: Politics, Poetics, and Latinidad in the Meta-Barrio.
In this episode, the press's director, Gabe Dotto, and the press's editor-in-chief, Catherine Cocks, join us to talk about the history and future of MSU Press and some of the challenges facing university press publishers today. This episode was recorded before the coronavirus pandemic shut down MSU's campus, and so the conversation does not include many of the new challenges facing UP publishers in response to the situation.
