Workshop with Ken Wissoker, Editorial Director of Duke University Press

We are now calling for expressions of interest in a workshop on how to get published by U.S. academic presses on Friday, 20 August 2010. Ken Wissoker, the editorial director of Duke University Press, will conduct the workshop, which includes practical advice on writing proposals, the review process, and manuscript preparation, as well as more general discussion of the state of scholarly publishing. In the past fifteen years, Duke University Press has developed a reputation for innovative and sometimes courageous publication in the humanities and social sciences.

The workshop will take place between 10.30 and 12, followed by a light lunch. Numbers are limited. If you want to participate, please contact Professor Warwick Anderson ( before July 23. Preference will be given to junior academic staff and advanced post-graduate students (the latter nominated by their supervisor). A few individual appointments with Ken Wissoker are also available on the afternoon of August 20 for intensive discussion of book projects.

On the evening of Thursday, 19 August, Ken Wissoker will take part in a SOPHI Humanities Salon, discussing more generally the current condition and future of scholarly publishing. The salon will be open to the public.

The visit of Ken Wissoker is sponsored by the Institute of Social Sciences, the Faculty of Arts, and the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry at the University of Sydney.
