Looking Forward: The Next Ten Years

Tuesday, January 29th | Looking Forward: The Next Ten Years 

As Bloomsbury celebrates ten years of outstanding publishing as Bloomsbury Academic, we’ve invited some of our most fascinating authors to fill us in on the opportunities, challenges and biggest changes coming to our lives in the next ten years at Conway Hall on Tuesday, January 29th. 

Come along as our experts in the Humanities and Social Sciences present their most ground-breaking ideas in a series of short talks, and group discussion, to tell us what lies ahead. Their collective years of research and writing means we’ll all benefit from their educated insights into the future of our world.

Covering sustainability, terrorism, geopolitics, gender, religion, education and philosophy – what are the key issues and how can we prepare for the changes and challenges that lie ahead? Come with us as we aim beyond the regular predictions and leave you thinking differently about our shared future.

Our speakers will each deliver a short talk and then take part in a live Q&A discussion, hosted by Jamie Bartlett, author of Radicals and The People vs. Tech, tech blogger and Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media for cross-party think-tank Demos in conjunction with The University of Sussex.

Inside Bloomsbury Publishing Rights

Tuesday, February 12th | Inside Bloomsbury: Rights - Publishing's Best Kept Secret

Step inside Bloomsbury Publishing as we share the fascinating and largely unknown world of selling rights and how publishers work together internationally to create beautiful and bestselling books.

In a brand new event series, Inside Bloomsbury, we open up about how we create and publish our books by inviting key members of the Bloomsbury team to talk about what they do in more detail than ever before.

In this third event of the series – following sold-out events for illustrators and editors and proofreaders - we bring together two of our team members in Rights to talk about how they sell our biggest children's and adult titles across all continents and into the world of film, tv and media.

In any given year, Bloomsbury releases more than 2,500 new titles and we strive to see the majority published across the world to create truly global bestsellers. Our Foreign Rights team work tirelessly to ensure Bloomsbury titles are in-demand at book fairs in Frankfurt, London and Bologna as well as travelling all over the world to meet regularly with foreign editors and international colleagues. It's a mystery why Foreign Rights isn't the first choice for new starters in publishing because we believe it is definitely the most exciting!

We're delighted to have two of Bloomsbury's rights’ team; Maria Hammershoy and Josephine Blaquiere taking the time out of their busy schedules to give advice to publishing professionals, new and established, who want to know more about foreign rights. Their discussion will be chaired by Danuta Kean.
