Life after the PhD: a series of conversations with visiting scholars

We are pleased to announce the second event of the ‘Life after the PhD’ seminar series. Claire Culleton, a visiting Moore Institute Fellow, is a Professor of English at Kent State University. She has written three books: Names and Naming in Joyce; Working-Class Culture, Women, and Britain, 1914-1921; and Joyce and the G-Men: J. Edgar Hoover’s Manipulation of Modernism. She is General Editor of an Irish Studies book series at Palgrave Macmillan USA and will talk with doctoral students about her experience as an editor reading book proposals, prospectuses, and manuscripts. She will discuss strategies for turning one’s dissertation into a book, identifying prospective presses, “shopping” the book around to publishing houses, and marketing and promoting one’s scholarship. You might call this An Insider’s Guide to getting an editor’s attention.

All welcome. Please rsvp to Kate Thornhill (kate.thornhill@nuigalway.ie)
