Turning Your Dissertation into a Book
Turning your dissertation into a book is one thing. Getting that book published is another. Come hear from a panel of humanities and social science editors on how to contact publishers, how to write a convincing book proposal, what editors look for, and what to expect throughout the process. You will have an opportunity to sign up for one-on-one meetings with the editors following the panel. As one of panelists writes, “Getting published is something that can be learned—just like interviewing, applying for grants, and constructing a syllabus.” Whether you are a first year grad student or about to finish your dissertation, this event is invaluable in helping you learn how to publish your (eventual) book.
