Getting Your Book Published: Publishers’ and Authors’ Perspectives
October 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Becoming a published scholarly writer is part of what it means to be a professional academic. However, there are specific skills for the academic author to learn—from proposal to manuscript to first book and on to the books that will follow. This session will focus on the professional publishing knowledge every academic writer needs. Experts in academic publishing will address the key issues, review options and strategies, and field questions. In addition, a LSA faculty member who has recently successfully navigated the publishing process will sit on the panel to share her experience and advice.
Host: Fiona Lee, LSA Associate Dean for DEI and Professional Development
Moderator: Alexandra Stern, Associate Dean for Humanities, College of Literature Sciences and Arts
Panelists: Charles Myers (University of Chicago Press) and Benedicte Boisseron (Associate Professor of Afroamerican and African Studies, University of Michigan)
Co-sponsored by the ADVANCE Program and the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
