We’re very pleased to announce the launch of a brand-new YouTube channel for CardiffUP, featuring a promotional video and some shorter film clips on specific topics. We hope you’ll find these interesting, thought-provoking and informative. To view them, go to https://www.youtube.com/ and search for “Cardiff University Press”, or click here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzDMeKIi6SYBKaNzmHrBN4A
The films have been created for us by the very talented Terry Morrell from ARK, a Cardiff-based small business offering technology, media and consultancy services.
If you’ve ever wondered what some of the CardiffUP staff look and sound like, now’s your chance to find out – Prof Damian Walford Davies, Prof Paul Bowman, Janet Peters, Sonja Haerkoenen and Alice Percival all appear in at least one film.
However, it’s been a time of great change for the staffing of CardiffUP: since the films were made, two of our “video stars” have left the Press and moved on to new and exciting things. Sonja, formerly our Scholarly Publications Manager, has moved to a new role at the University of Augsburg in Germany. And Damian, the former Chair of our Editorial Board, has stepped down from this role after his promotion to Pro Vice-Chancellor for Cardiff University’s College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
We’re delighted that Paul has recently become our new Board Chair, vacating the role of Editor-in-Chief that he’s held since CardiffUP was first established. With two new University Library Service staff and several PhD students also joining the Board this summer, we have lots of new ideas and renewed energy for the future! You can keep track of our changing Board membership on our website at https://www.cardiffuniversitypress.org/site/about/
