If you’ve wondered how to get a book published with an academic press, please come hear Reed Malcolm of UC Press demystify the process. This discussion, sponsored by ICIS and the UC Davis Humanities Institute, will include preparing a book proposal, pitching it to an editor, the ins and outs of the review process and revising your manuscript for publication. The event is intended primarily for graduate students and junior faculty but everyone is invited to contribute their comments, questions and experiences.

Reed Malcolm, Senior Editor for Anthropology and Asian Studies, holds a M.A. in the history of religion from the University of Chicago and a B.A. in political science from UC Berkeley. Prior to joining UC Press in 1995, Reed worked at the University of Chicago Press and at Parallax Press in Berkeley. The UC Press Anthropology list encompasses all aspects of social and cultural studies, including comparative, historical, and multi-sited ethnography. Core areas include medical anthropology, public anthropology, global studies, religion, politics, linguistics, science and technology, Asia, and Latin America. Reed has had the good fortune of publishing such well-known authors as Arthur Kleinman, Joao Biehl, Elinor Ochs, Tanya Luhrmann, Joel Robbins, and Michael Jackson, among others. The Asian Studies at UC Press list is one of the longest running and most highly-regarded in the country, having published award-winning titles in history, anthropology, sociology, politics and policy. Authors have included Frederick Wakeman, Andrew Gordon, Sheldon Pollock, Romila Thapar, and Melvyn Goldtstein.

This event is sponsored by Innovating Communication in Scholarship (ICIS).
