Humanities Initiative Panel Discussion: Writing Outside The Box

University presses continue to be a key venue for scholars to publish their work, but trade houses are often surprisingly welcoming of books by academics. What circumstances lead authors to turn to publishing for a general readership, and how do editors at such publishing houses think about their relationship with scholarly authors? What books are most successful when this route is pursued, and how do editors and academic authors discover each other? In two panels, a group of distinguished authors and editors discuss aspects of the process, both personal and professional, and provide their own considerations on the relationship of the university and the publishing industry today. This event is co-sponsored with the New York Institute for the Humanities and will be moderated by the Institute’s Director, Eric Banks and Jane Tylus, Professor of Italian Studies and Faculty Director of the Humanities Initiative.6:00pm – 8:00pm EDT At 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor
