Faculty Book Manuscript Workshops

The Faculty Book Manuscript Workshops provide a structure for generating constructive, informed criticism on near-final book manuscripts, at a moment in the writing process when authors can most effectively utilize such feedback. The program's goal is to transform already excellent scholarly projects into superior published works. 

From 2008 and 2015, the Workshops were funded by two successive Mellon Foundation grants. Now funded by Duke, the program has been re-configured to focus on Assistant Professors in the humanities, arts, and interpretive social sciences. Please see below for recent books published by "alumni" of the program. To view a list of all award recipients since the inception of the program, click here.
