Learn the intricacies of scholarly book publishing at next Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities event

Book Publishing in the Humanities flyerThe publishing process for scholars in the humanities is often confusing, 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.

The next Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities event will serve as an introduction to academic book publishing, with an emphasis on the humanities. Stefan Vranka, executive editor at the Oxford University Press, which is responsible 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 will be held Monday, Oct. 5, at noon in Clark Hall, Room 206.

Though free and open to the public, those who plan to attend should register online.
