The city of Edinburgh will be our classroom as we focus on building critical skills for understanding and working within an international book environment, particularly in Scotland. This two-week course incorporates guest lectures, hands-on workshop visits, event participation, and small group discussions in addition to traditional classroom time. Time spent observing and analyzing the book processes and agents within the Scottish publishing industry will be interspersed with bookish site visits (and yes, the birthplace of Harry Potter will be one of them).

As the world grows increasingly globalized and interconnected, so does the publishing world, so that to be an informed and experienced publishing professional in the United States, it is even more important to know how the publishing industry operates in international contexts like the UK. It is an excellent opportunity to get hands-on experience with the Scottish book publishing industry.
