Location Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States
Introduction I am Director of University of Michigan Press and Associate University Librarian for Publishing at University of Michigan Library. Until June 2014 I was Director of Purdue University Press. Previously, until August 2009, I was Director of Publications at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. My degree from Cambridge University is in Archaeology and Anthropology and I continued to do fieldwork until 2010, most recently as a co-director of the Shala Valley Project in Northern Albania. I edited, with Michael L. Galaty of Millsaps College, Archaeology under Dictatorship, published by Springer in 2004. As a member of the Board of Directors of both the Society for Scholarly Publishing and the Association of American University Presses, I am heavily involved with wider issues of scholarly communication. I also chair and speak at a number of seminars on scholarly communication issues.
