First Book Workshop

This workshop is intended to introduce 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 a press editor, how to submit a prospectus to a publisher, and what happens after a manuscript has been accepted for publication. 

Interdisciplinary Graduate Research Workshops

All graduate students are invited to attend this workshop, directed by the four people who received Hall Center Graduate Summer Research Awards. The talks will incline more to method, problem, or theory than to subject content, to increase their appeal to a wider audience. All workshops will be held in the Hall Center Seminar Room.
