Like other university presses, Duke has used video clips to promote books and authors. It has also used clips to spotlight press practices. New to YouTube this week is “Behind the Covers: The Making of a Journal at Duke University Press.”
The occasion was the recent redesign of The South Atlantic Quarterly. The five-minute clip documents the production process for SAQ’s Winter 2011 special issue, “Theory Now.” Duke’s previous behind-the-scenes video came from the book division and featured editor in chief Ken Wissoker discussing acquisitions at the press.
