Event description

Description

How should a scholar organize research and present it on the page? That’s the fundamental question underlying academic publishing, and a perennial challenge for us as scholars. In this talk, William Germano draws upon his extensive experience in scholarly publishing – as publisher, editor, teacher, and author – to examine ways in which scholars can work most effectively to produce books that will be published -- and not only published but read.

William Germano is author of Getting It Published: a Guide for Scholars and Anyone Else Serious about Serious Books (University of Chicago Press, 2016) and From Dissertation to Book (University of Chicago Press, 2013). He writes a biweekly blog for the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Lingua Franca blog; he has also published essays on writing and publishing in the Chronicle and elsewhere. Other books: The Tales of Hoffmann (BFI Film Classics, 2013), on Powell and Pressburger’s 1951 opera-film, and Eye Chart (Bloomsbury, 2017), a short cultural history of visual measurement. During a first career as a scholarly publisher, he worked as editor-in-chief of Columbia University Press and as vice-president and publishing director at Routledge, a position he held for nineteen years.
