The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism has partnered with OR Books to launch a new imprint that will publish academic books about journalism. The imprint will publish three-to five books a year beginning next year.
The imprint will publish Distant Witness: Social Media, the Arab Spring and a Journalism Revolution by Andy Carvin, senior strategist for social media at NPR; Fighting for the Press: The Inside Story of the Pentagon Papers by James Goodale, former chief Counsel at The New York Times; Investigative Journalism in America: A History by Steve Weinberg, a member of the University of Missouri Journalism School; and The Pleasures of Being Out of Step: Nat Hentoff’s Life in Journalism, Jazz, and the First Amendment by CUNY Journalism professor David L. Lewis.
CUNY Professor Jeff Jarvis helped to develop the publishing model for the press. Tim Harper, a visiting professor and writing teacher at CUNY, will serve as the imprint’s editor.
