Oxford Editor’s International Sideline

Last week, Oxford University Press took Dedi Felman, the executive editor of its academic division, and made her the imprint-wide executive editor. It’s been a busy week for Felman, to be sure, but she was able to dash off a quick note in response to some Galleycat questions. First of all, she says, her acquiring focus will be on current affairs, with an international slant, and on social science books with a trade orientation. And despite the increased workload, she’s going to continue moonlighting as the editor of Words Without Borders, “the online magazine for international literature” currently featuring a broad range of works translated from indigenous American languages. Describing the site as “a passionate folly not so easily relinquished,” Felman concedes, “‘Tis folly to try to do so much, but it’s a necessary endeavor.”
