September 5, 2018 - September 18, 2018
Dr. Ed Dimendberg, professor of Humanities and European Languages and Studies at the University of California, Irvine, will visit campus on September 17th and 18th. Ed is a prolific author and editor of several monographs and essay collections, and has worked as an editor with UC Press, University of Minnesota Press, and Northwestern University Press. Over two days, Ed will present a seminar on academic publishing, and he will meet with faculty individually for half-hour sessions to discuss book proposals. These sessions are designed for faculty who are in some stage of preparing a book proposal to submit to an academic press. Ed’s role will be to read and advise you on how to develop your scholarly project, how to situate your work in disciplinary and cross-disciplinary contexts, and how best to frame and organize your ideas for successful submission.
