Duke Press' Ken Wissoker: From Dissertation to Book

From Dissertation to Book

How should scholars think about subject, tone, length, and audience in revising their dissertation into a first book? How are second books different? Ken Wissoker, Editorial Director at Duke University Press, offered advice about the process, challenges, and possibilities of writing and publishing scholarly books. Hosted by FHI's new Publishing Humanities Initiative, this event was co-sponsored by Versatile Humanists at Duke.
