Katie Helke

Associate Acquisitions Editor

All Editors

Katie began acquiring titles on the MIT Press’s STS list in 2013. She has been with the Press since 2007, when she came on board to work on the economics, finance, and business lists. Since then she’s worked on the new media, game studies, and design lists, and she’s acquired books on education and digital media and learning. She is currently working to grow the STS list, focusing on rigorous professional monographs, trade history of science and technology titles, and academic trade books that fully engage their scholarly audiences while having the voice and topical edge to speak to a broader readership.
