Information Studies

Dr Daniel Boswell

I joined University College London's Department of Information Studies as a Teaching Fellow in September 2015 to work as part of the MA Publishing team within the UCL Centre for Publishing. Prior to my appointment at UCL, I was a Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University within the department of English and Media, where I was Acting Course Leader on the Publishing postgraduate programme and delivered modules in History of the Book on the English undergraduate programme. I teach on the Publishing MA on the following modules:  Publishing Entrepreneurship (Term One), Publishing Skills (Term One and Two), Sales and Marketing (Term One), Illustrated Publishing (Term Two), Theories of the Book (Term Two), Children's Publishing (Term Two), Publishing Contexts (Term One).

My main research interest centres around small nation cultural production with a focus on issues surrounding minority languages and translation, and also the cumulative and differentiating aspects of globalisation and identity. Digital development is also a key concern, as is entrepreneurship. In my present role I am also concentrating on pedagogical research around the developing field of publishing studies as an academic discipline and subject group.

I am currently Programme Director of MA Publishing, and also a departmental e-learning champion.  I am very interested in access to the publishing industry, and am pursuing ways of providing publishing education to a wider catchment.  

I welcome informal enquiries from prospective research students interested in Publishing and Book Studies related topics.
