Writing the Dissertation (Imagining the Book)

April 7, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Some dissertations are more than a doctoral requirement. But what makes a dissertation work as a book? In this talk William Germano addresses the skill of diagnosing your own scholarly work so that you can can recognize where dissertations end and books begin.  

William Germano is professor of English literature and dean of the faculty of humanities and social sciences at Cooper Union. Formerly vice-president at Routledge and, earlier, editor-in-chief at Columbia UP, he lectures and writes about academic writing. His most recent books are Getting It Published: A Guide for Scholars and Anyone Else Serious about Serious Books, now in a third edition (2016), and From Dissertation to Book (second ed., 2012), both from the University of Chicago Press. He has lectured and led workshops on scholarly writing at more than fifty colleges and universities across North America and around the world.

Cosponsored by the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies and The Art of Writing Program.
