Faculty Book MS Workshops

page-projects-bookms.jpgThe FHI's Faculty Book Manuscript Workshop program provides 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. 

Between 2008 and 2015, this program was funded by two successive Mellon Foundation grants. Beginning 2015-16, this program has been re-configured to focus on Assistant Professors in the humanities, arts, and interpretive social sciences. The award includes an intensive half-day manuscript workshop with external readers and local interlocutors along with a course release.
