RLI Intern Blog: The Benefits of Working in a Small Team

Being in the middle of only my second week as the Marketing Intern at RLI, some might not think I would have enough to talk about in a blog post; but I’m here to tell you of the breadth and depth of what I have learned in my short time here.



Interdisciplinarity: It’s not a dirty word

Jane-Héloïse Nancarrow, a post-doctoral researcher at the University of York offers some advice for scholars considering an interdisciplinary PhD.




Rowman & Littlefield International is a new independent academic publisher focusing its publishing in the disciplines of: Philosophy, Politics & International Relations, Cultural Studies and Economics. We are particularly intrigued by the interdisciplinary nature of these subject areas.

We are passionate about bringing incisive modern scholarship to a global readership, insisting on high quality at every point in the publishing process. We firmly believe in the value of publishing cutting-edge research for a scholarly audience.

We use efficient technologies to reach our readership rapidly in digital and print formats, around the globe.

We are connected to the academic community and enthused by the ways in which technology is changing the way that community works.

We launched the business in London in November 2012, in collaboration with the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group in Washington DC. That link gives us excellent access to the US market, and allows us to combine the flexibility of a start-up with the resources of an established player.
