Forthcoming "Feminism and International Relations" volume flagged as potential bestseller
Posted on behalf of Professor Tickner...
We recently received the following message from Christine Swedowsky, The US-based Marketing Manager for Politics at ROUTLEDGE which contained the following:
"Your outstanding book "Feminism and International Relations" has caught my attention at the ISA, where it was one of our bestsellers (despite not having published, I might add). I would very much like to give the title an extra amount of tailored promotion and would appreciate the opportunity to discuss further marketing for your book with you. I am looking forward to working with you on the promotion of your title - I do believe it has great potential."
The book was the outcome of a CIS workshop in April of 2010, organized by Jane Jaquette of Occidental College, Laura Sjoberg of University of Florida and myself entitled "Twenty Years of Feminist International Relations: Conversations about the past, present and future." Conference papers, which are now book chapters, are all written by former (recent) USC Ph.D students and former CIS postdoctoral fellows. Commentaries are provided by senior scholars in the field, all of whom have some prior association with USC through participation in earlier CIS conferences or as postdoctoral fellows. The conference was sponsored by CIS, SIR, and the College of Letters Arts and Sciences (now the Dana and David Dornsife College).
I am so pleased that this book generated such interest at the International Studies Association Annual Conference that Routledge has flagged it as one of their potential best sellers. It is a real tribute to our graduate and postdoctoral programs and especially to the young scholars who have come through these programs whose work is generating such excitement at an early stage in their careers.
I would like to thank all those who participated in the conference and who have worked so hard on this project. The speed with which it has come to publication is due to the untiring efforts of Laura Sjoberg, my former student whose own recent Ph.D student, Jessica Peet, is an author in the volume and who will be teaching at the School of International Relations next year.
