The Graduate Consortium in Women's Studies invites you to:
Publishing Options: Meet the Editors
Tuesday, May 5th, 2-3:30 PM
MIT Campus, Building E51-095
 
The GCWS’ Faculty Development committee welcomes you to a Conversation on Publishing Options. We are very fortunate to have editors from Beacon, Harvard, and MIT Presses, whose specific acquisition interests include religion, classics, immigration, and science and technology, and whose presses are highly regarded for both scholarly monographs and trade books in a range of fields. Whether we are at the mid-career level or trying to figure out how to turn that dissertation into a book, this will be a wonderful opportunity for all of us. We look forward to seeing you there.
