Publish or Perish: Choosing and Approaching Academic Publishers

Presenter: Susan Wadsworth-Booth (Duquesne University Press)
Time and Date: TBD
Location: TBD

The workshop is intended for graduate students and junior faculty who want to learn about getting their work published in today's academic environment. We will discuss how to research and choose appropriate publishers, how to prepare initial proposals for a publisher's review, how doctoral dissertations may (or may not) be revised for book publication, how the review process works, and how new technologies and models (such as electronic journals and open-access publications) fit into the process. This workshop will focus on the humanities and social sciences, though all are welcome.

Planning a Writing Intensive Course

Presenter: James Purdy (English & Writing Center)
Time and Date: TBD
Location: TBD
One of the biggest challenges of teaching a writing-intensive course is incorporating the writing assignments/projects into the syllabus. When should due dates fall? How can the syllabus reflect the scaffolding of activities the lead to a writing project? How can writing activities fit in with all the content to be covered? This hands-on workshop will guide participants in planning the syllabus for a spring 2014 writing-intensive course. Faculty and graduate students will leave with an outline of the schedule of writing projects and tasks.
