The Professional Scholarly Writer explores strategies for
strengthening skills in professional writing and project design
as well as the mechanics of scholarly publishing in the print
and digital environment. The primary target audience of the
session is the advnaced graduate student writing the
dissertation and the new Ph.D. revising the dissertation into publishable book form. The session will, however, explore key issues that extend beyond that horizon: many of the skills required for revising a dissertation are, in fact, the same skills necessary for a productive scholarly writing life.
William Germano is Dean of the Humanities and Social Sciences and professor of English Literature at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. For over twenty years he directed programs in scholarly publishing, first as editor-in-chief at Columbia University Press and then as vice-president and publishing director at Routledge. His books include Getting It Published: A Guide for Scholars and Anyone Else Serious about Serious Books (University of Chicago Press, 2001) and From Dissertation to Book (University of Chicago Press, 2005).
