Yale Launches New Publishing Course

yalepub.jpgYale University will add a week-long publishing course to its summer offerings this July, picking up where Stanford left off when it discontinued its long-running course last year.

The weeklong intensive program (held in the Greenberg Conference Center, pictured) is a direct descendant of the Stanford Professional Publishing Course, and it will feature some of the same advisors and lecturers, like Robert Baensch and Martin Levin. It is slated to run from July 18 to 23 this year, and will recur annually. Like Stanford’s course, this is for mid- and upper-level professionals in books and magazines. The curriculum will cover topics such as “strategic planning, financial management and entrepreneurship; best practices in the use of new technology and content delivery; legal issues involving open access and intellectual property; and the future of digital dissemination.”

That Stanford’s course came to an end after 32 years was the result of “both the economy and larger transitions in the program’s core fields,” according to a note on the school’s website. Good on Yale for figuring out a way to host the program despite those issues. We’re anxious to see what they do with it.
