Do you have a seminar paper, conference presentation, or dissertation chapter that you’d like to turn into a peer-reviewed journal article? This workshop, aimed at graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in humanities and social science fields, will take a genre-based approach toward achieving that goal by analyzing previously published articles in targeted journals. We will discuss how to 

  • Assess how your topic is conversant with your field
  • Find out what editors are looking for
  • Select an appropriate journal for your subject
  • Revise your seminar paper, chapter, or presentation
  • Submit your article

Building from the pedagogy of genre theorist Dr. Amy Devitt and business scholar Dr. Ann Sigismund Huff (Writing for Scholarly Publication, 1998), this workshop will give you strategies to get the most out of your early-career publication(s). 

Workshop Leader: Nathaniel Williams (Ph.D., University of Kansas, 2010) is the author of Gears and God: Technocratic Fiction, Faith, and Empire in Mark Twain's America(University of Alabama Press. 2018).
