A Workshop with Edward Dimendberg

Edward Dimendberg is principal of Dimendberg Consulting LLC. From 1990 to 1998, Dimendberg was sponsoring editor in the humanities at the UCLA office of the University of California Press, where he published over 100 books and worked with authors including Arthur Danto, Anne Friedberg, and Martin Jay.  He is currently a General Editor of the Weimar and Now: German Cultural Criticism book series, published by University of California Press, and Coordinator of the FlashPoints book series in literary studies published by University of California Press and Northwestern University Press. 

Dimendberg is Professor of Film and Media Studies, Visual Studies, and European Languages and Studies at the University of California, Irvine.  He is the author of Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity (Harvard University Press, 2004) and Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Architecture after Images (University of Chicago Press, 2013). 

The workshop will be geared toward the needs of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. It will address the basics of transforming a dissertation into a book manuscript, selecting a publisher, and establishing contact with editors.  It also will cover peer review, the stages of the publishing process, the workings of university presses, the protocols of multiple submissions, the opportunities presented by electronic publishing, and proposing interdisciplinary manuscripts.  Special emphasis will be placed on how to write a successful book proposal.
