New AUC Press director Michael Duckworth
Michael Duckworth has been named the new director of AUC Press, effective July 1, 2020, based out of the Cairo office. Mr. Duckworth brings 30 years of publishing experience at such presses as the University of Hong Kong, University of Hawaii, the University of Cincinnati, and the University of Washington. Duckworth succeeds Dr. Nigel Fletcher-Jones, who retires this summer.
“I am confident that Michael will build upon AUC Press’s successes and will continue to expand our readership worldwide,” said Francis Ricciardone, President of The American University in Cairo, who made the announcement.
With offices in Cairo and New York, the AUC Press is distributed in North American by Ingram Academic, in the UK and worldwide by Bloomsbury with the exception of Egypt, where AUC distributes itself. In addition to its publishing program, AUC Press operates six bookstores in Egypt.
