Getting Your Book Published: Publishers’ and Authors’ Perspectives

October 18, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Becoming a published scholarly writer is part of what it means to be a professional academic. But 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. Also, a LSA faculty member who has recently successfully navigated the publishing process will sit on the panel to share her/his experience and advice.

Host: Fiona Lee, LSA Associate Dean for DEI and Professional Development
Moderator: Alexandra Stern, LSA Associate Dean for the Humanities
Panelists: Mark Simpson-Vos (UNC Press), Chuck Myers (University of Chicago Press) and Amal Hassan Fadlalla (U-M Women’s Studies, Anthropology and Afroamerican and African Studies)

Co-sponsored by the ADVANCE Program and the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
