"Publishing in the Humanities" with Ray Ryan

Ray Ryan is Senior Commissioning Editor of English and American Literature at Cambridge University Press and has commissioned a wide array of award-winning publications. His talk, "Publishing in the Humanities" will cover crucial topics (such as turning a PhD dissertation into a book length study and the contemporary publishing industry) that will be especially helpful for graduate students as they plan their career trajectories.

This workshop should be of particular interest to those grad students on (or nearing) the academic job market, as search committees often want to know that you have a publishing plan in place for your first few years on the tenure track.

Ryan is also the author of Ireland and Scotland: Literature and CultureState and Nation 1966-2000, editor of Writing in the Irish Republic: Literature, Culture, Politics, 1949-1999, and co-editor of Ireland and Scotland: Culture and Society, 1700-2000. For more information, please visit his website.
