The publishing process for scholars in the humanities is often a confusing one, especially for first-time authors. Today’s shifting landscape of scholarly publishing, with new formats and media for disseminating and promoting scholarship, confronts a would-be author with numerous choices. This lecture is meant to serve an introduction to academic book publishing, with an emphasis on the humanities. Stefan Vranka, Executive Editor for scholarly and trade publications in Classics, Ancient History, and Archaeology, will help to demystify the path from first inquiry and proposal to printed books and beyond.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration recommended.
