Oxford University Press Editor Hosting Events for Authors

The Humanities Center and the Departments of English and History are co-sponsoring a campus visit next Tuesday, March 31, by Susan Ferber, Executive Editor of U.S. and World History at Oxford University Press. Ferber is one of the most influential and distinguished editors in her field, and she counts among her books Pulitzer and Bancroft winners, along with five national best sellers. She has also become a prominent public voice in demystifying the academic publishing world, frequently giving talks and writing essays on how to succeed in that constantly changing industry.

Susan Ferber will be hosting two events at UT on Tuesday, March 31st. From 11 a.m. to noon in Dunford Hall, Room 2604, she will be leading an informal Q&A session with first-time authors – advanced graduate students and recent PhDs. For those working on either dissertations or first books, please come with any and all publishing questions. Then, at 4 p.m. in the second floor conference room of the Humanities Center (Melrose Hall, Room F203), she’ll be giving a talk titled “The Dirty Little Secret of the Second Book” (see flyer for more information). While aimed at more experienced authors, this presentation will also be informative to first-timers, as she’ll discuss tips on how to approach publishers and how university presses operate.
