As director of the Press since 2012, my primary responsibilities involve overall management of our publishing program and staff. I enjoy acquiring a rather eclectic list of scholarly and general interest projects that contribute to our understanding of issues of international and human importance. Our security and international affairs series, published in partnership with Department of International Affairs in the School of Public and International Affairs at UGA, focuses on global issues including human rights, cybersecurity, and nuclear nonproliferation. I have expanded our women’s history list to include new directions and voices. I have also published successful titles that focus on beautiful photography to illustrate the story being told.

My list of acquisitions is fairly eclectic and includes Breaking Ground: My Life in Medicine by Dr. Louis Sullivan with David Chanoff; Landscapes for the People: George Alexander Grant, First Chief Photographer of the National Park Service by Ren and Helen Davis; Migration Crises and the Structure of International Cooperation by Jeannette Money and Sarah P. Lockhart; Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy, edited by Nicole Seitz and Jonathan Haupt; and Alone atop the Hill: The Autobiography of Alice Dunnigan, Pioneer of the National Black Press edited by Carol McCabe Booker.
