Donnerstag, 17.10.2013 - Freitag, 18.10.2013
This two-day seminar will explore contemporary best practice for both academic presses and scholars as they seek a cooperative model for the advancement and dissemination of new forms of knowledge. Our emphasis, however, will be pragmatic. How best can today’s scholars interact with the scholarly publishing industry and – more important – with their scholarly audience? Recommended (but not required) reading: Getting It Published (University of Chicago Press, 2008) and From Dissertation to Book (University of Chicago Press, 2005). Attendance both days is strongly recommended so that we can sustain a conversation across the range of the seminar’s issues. No written work is required, but participants are strongly encouraged to come with questions.
