Hall Center Scholarly Workshops

First Book Workshop

This workshop is intended to introduce early career faculty to the process of publishing a first scholarly book. Throughout the course of the workshop, which is offered in alternate years and meets five to six times during the spring semester, workshop leaders will guide participants through topics such as the differences between a dissertation and book manuscript, how to approach a press editor, how to submit a prospectus to a publisher, and what happens after a manuscript has been accepted for publication.

Interdisciplinary Graduate Research Workshops

All graduate students are invited to attend this workshop, directed by the four people who received Hall Center Graduate Summer Research Awards. The talks will incline more to method, problem, or theory than to subject content, to increase their appeal to a wider audience. All workshops will be held in the Hall Center Seminar Room. 

Co-directors:
 
Andrew Avery - History
Divya Rhadika Bhalla - English
Mariah Crystal - Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies
Andisheh Ghaderi - French & Italian

New Faculty Workshops

The Hall Center sponsors a workshop designed to help new faculty members in the humanities, social sciences and fine arts negotiate their first three years at KU. Participants meet other new faculty and have the opportunity to question a number of more senior colleagues about teaching, research and service.

Research and Grant Development Office Workshops

The Hall Center for the Humanities Research & Grant Development Office (RGDO) continues to expand learning opportunities for scholars seeking to enhance their skills; advance their research, scholarship, and creative activities; and improve their competitiveness for grants and fellowships. To that end, they prepare a variety of workshops for faculty and students each semester. Follow the link below for more details:
