2018 BHC Meeting Workshop: Navigating the World of Academic Publishing

Albert Churella, Kennesaw State University, chair

Whether you are an emerging scholar or a seasoned veteran, getting published is always important but never easy.  The phrase "publish or perish" has become a cliche, but graduate programs and academic advisors often bypass discussions of that topic.  This is your opportunity to learn from authors, editors, and members of editorial boards -- the people who have written books and articles, and who determine which manuscripts get published.  Participants will discuss the mechanics of identifying and contacting an editor, developing a persuasive and engaging proposal, coming up with a brief "elevator" statement about the dissertation, promoting one's work through blogs or similar means, and dealing with the inevitable process of rejection.

Panelists:

Regina Lee Blaszczyk, University of Leeds
Shane Hamilton, University of York
Susie J. Pak, St. John’s University
Andrew Popp, University of Liverpool and editor, Enterprise & Society
Wendy Woloson, Rutgers University
