Scholarly Workshops

First Book Workshop

This workshop introduces early career faculty to the process of publishing a first scholarly book. Throughout the course of the workshop, which is offered in alternate years and meets five to six times during the spring semester, workshop leaders will guide participants through topics such as the differences between a dissertation and book manuscript, how to approach an editor for an academic press, how to submit a prospectus to a publisher, and what happens after a manuscript has been accepted for publication. For more information, please visit our First Book Workshop  page.

Interdisciplinary Graduate Research Workshops

All graduate students are invited to attend these workshops, which are led each semester by recent recipients of graduate student funding from the Hall Center. The workshops focus on topics related to method, problem, or theory rather than to specific subject content. All workshops take place in the Hall Center Seminar Room. Please contact the Hall Center at for each semester's Interdisciplinary Graduate Research Workshop schedule and for information on how to attend.
