This week (9th – 16th November) is the world’s first ever Academic Book Week. Academic Book Week is a week of debate and celebration around the academic book and what its future holds with a series of events, competitions, promotions, and social media activity taking place all over the UK and beyond.
Events are being hosted by bookshops, libraries, universities, and academic publishers, with debates and panels ranging from questioning the future of the academic book and where it will ‘live’ to the importance of university bookshops to whether or not we can trust Wikipedia. A full list of events during Academic Book Week can be found here.
Academic Book Week is a key event in The Academic Book of the Future project’s calendar. The Academic Book of the Future project is a two year initiative exploring the future of the academic book, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in collaboration with The British Library.
