KEN WISSOKER GIVES "DISSERTATION TO FIRST BOOK" TALK AT THE FUTURES INITIATIVE
If you weren’t one of the more than 100 people able to make it to Ken Wissoker’s "Dissertation to First Book" talk, don’t worry; I’ve got you covered. Wissoker, the senior executive editor at Duke University Press and director of Intellectual Publics at the Graduate Center, spent about 90 minutes speaking and answering questions – all mediated by the indomitable Adashima Oyo, interim associate director of the Futures Initiative (FI) at the Graduate Center and a Graduate Center Ph.D. candidate (Social Welfare) – about the difficulties, anxieties, and myriad considerations that go into the process of turning your dissertation into a first book. Not only can you can catch the full talk on FI’s YouTube channel anytime, you can always refer to this post on the FI website for the highlights. You can also stop over at the Future Initiative’s Twitter feed to see some quotes live-tweeted by Future Initiatives fellow Coline Chevrin.
