French partnership for Liverpool UP

French partnership for Liverpool UP

Liverpool University Press (LUP) and Presses Universitaires de Provence (PUP) have entered into a new strategic partnership that will see select titles appearing under both imprints.

PUP will sell to continental Europe and LUP to English-language territories and globally in digital form.
 
PUP is the publishing arm of Aix-Marseille University, the largest university in the French-speaking world. Director Charles Zaremba said: “The partnership between PUP and LUP, the presses of two prestigious European centres of learning, aims to become a crossroads for the circulation of knowledge and ideas between the French and English-speaking worlds, publishing leading research with an intercultural outlook, in paper and digital formats.”
 
Anthony Cond, managing director of LUP, commented: “This is something rather more than co-publication or distribution: it is an ongoing strategic alliance that will broaden the audience for English language scholarship in a number of different fields – such as travel writing, memory studies, history - coming out of France.  In the other direction, we have the opportunity to maximise the continental audience for English language scholarship on France.”
