Faculty Workshp: Starting and Maintaining a Life of Writing
About our Guest Speaker Jeanne Barker-Nunn
Jeanne Barker-Nunn has served on the faculty of three universities and as managing editor of a leading interdisciplinary scholarly journal and consulting editor for several academic presses. In 1996 she founded J. B. Barker-Nunn & Associates to help other academics plan, write, and publish their scholarly work and advance their careers. Since then she has worked with more than a hundred clients from a wide range of disciplines and institutions across the country and abroad. An interdisciplinary scholar who has written on the writing life, both literary and scholarly, Jeanne has a doctorate in American studies and earlier degrees in English and education.
This workshop is intended to demystify the process of scholarly writing and publishing by providing insights and tools that participants can immediately apply to increase their productivity and success as teacher-scholars. Among the main topics addressed will be how to create a self-motivating research agenda and integrate scholarship into the teaching life; what publishers are looking for and how the submission process works; how to know when a piece is ready for submission and increase the likelihood of its acceptance; how to decode and use reviewer comments; and how to create the conditions for sustained success as scholars.
