The two candidates selected as finalists for the director of the University of Wisconsin Press will be on campus to talk about their experiences in publishing and what direction they would like the 78-year-old publishing division of the university to take.
Kathy Borkowski and Dennis Lloyd have been selected as finalists after a national search by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, the university said in a news release on Tuesday.
Borkowski is director of the Wisconsin Historical Society Press, and Lloyd is the deputy director of sales, marketing and acquisitions at University Press of Florida.
Lloyd will speak at 3:30 p.m. Thursday and Borkowski will speak at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, both at UW-Madison's Memorial Library. The talks are open to the public.
The new director will take over for interim director Lea Jacobs, film professor and associate vice chancellor for arts and humanities.
The University of Wisconsin Press has published more than 3,000 books since 1937 and has more than 1,400 titles in print. The Press also published 11 peer-reviewed journals in the humanities, social sciences and medicine.
