Group seminars or individual conferences scheduled to meet special needs. Prerequisite: permission of graduate program adviser.
Publishing during your years as a grad student is one of the best ways to prepare for your future on the job market. This seminar will introduce you to the ins and outs of scholarly publishing, to academic journals in your field, to the art of conference papers and other such professional tools. You'll be preparing an essay to submit to a journal and we will all work together to move your work from a grad student paper toward professional publication now or in the near future. You can work either on an essay you've already started, or begin to draft something new. Students at any level who have an interest in academic publication are welcome.
