Joining Scholarly Conversations: Academic Publishing, in Theory and Praxis

Monday 5 June 2017, 4.00PM

Speaker(s): Dr Tita Chico

This event is open to all PG students in humanities and arts disciplines. Register here!

Dr Chico, Associate Professor of English at the University of Maryland, is the editor of ECTI (Eighteenth Century: Theory and Interpretation),

Tita Chico specializes in Restoration and 18th-century British literature and culture, literature and science, critical theory, and cultural studies. She is the author of Designing Women: The Dressing Room in Eighteenth-Century English Literature and Culture (2005) and co-editor of Atlantic Worlds of the Long Eighteenth Century: Seduction and Sentiment (2012), as well as many other articles and essays.

In this workshop, she offers guidance and advice on preparing articles for academic publication. She will discuss the two key questions facing junior scholars as they consider academic publishing: 1) when is your research ready for a wider—that is, professional—audience; and 2) what ought that audience be? She will discuss how one determines what is critically exigent (or not) and how to find the most appropriate publication venue for one’s scholarship.

Participants should come to the workshop with a particular piece of scholarship they are interested in developing, or have developed, for publication. Participants should also review this website on humanities journals ( ), read this article on publishing a first article (, and identify their favorite journals (three in their own field) and, in so doing, familiarize themselves with the submission guidelines for each.

This event is free, but registration is required. Tea and cake will be served. This event is sponsored by the Eighteenth Century and Romantics Research School in the Department of English and Related Literature.
