Firestone LibraryThis online conference joins theoretical issues addressed by scholars and editors with practical workshops in global publishing led by publishers from the US and other parts of the world.  We expect this conference will break new ground intellectually as its practical publishing sessions offer information and advice to the next generation of scholars who face the ongoing challenges of a shrinking job market and complex publishing landscape.  
This 3-day online conference will accommodate 250 registered early career participants (pre-tenure, post-doc, senior graduate student level) from around the world.  Registration requires uploading a book description and, if desired, also an abstract for a panel discussion on one of the conference themes.  Each conference participant will have a one-on-one coaching session offering publishing advice on their submitted book description.  There is no fee for this conference.



The conference organizers gratefully acknowledge the following Princeton co-sponsors: University Center for Human Values, Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication, Princeton African Humanities Colloquium, Humanities Council, Dept. of Comparative Literature, Dept. of English, Dept. of History, Dept. of African American Studies.
