Alison Mudditt has been contributing to The Scholarly Kitchen for a while, and we figured it was time to make her an official Chef. Alison has been working to bring new voices to the Kitchen, particularly those from university presses, curating a series of posts (here and here so far) to broaden the ideas and viewpoints presented on this blog.
While Alison will continue to curate these guest posts, she will also be writing her own posts which is exciting because, as Director of the University of California Press, Alison is at the forefront of experimentation and exploration of new models for scholarly publishers. Alison brings a wealth of publishing experience to the Kitchen, both from the commercial and the not-for-profit realms (previous to running the UC Press she has worked at SAGE, Taylor & Francis and Blackwell).
Please join me in welcoming Alison to the Kitchen!
