Writing and Publishing in a Time of Media Transformation

 

Taking research done for a thesis or for an audience of like-minded scholars and turning it into a book that will be read across oceans and disciplines has always been a challenge. Now, in a difficult financial climate for publishers and with electronic forms of the book proliferating, it is more difficult than ever.  My talk will cover both the biggest issues -- what we might expect the book to look like in five years -- and more grounded advice on how scholars should approach their own writing and publishing.

This event is free and open to the public; no registration is required.  For further information, please contact Kim Yates at (416) 946-0313.
