How to Edit Scholarly Volumes: Lessons from the Presumed Incompetent Project (Webinar)

How to Edit Scholarly Volumes: Lessons from the Presumed Incompetent Project (Webinar)

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the publication of Presumed Incompetent: The Intersections of Race and Class for Women in Academia (Gabriella Gutirrez y Muhs, Yolanda Flores Niemann, Carmen G. Gonzalez, Angela P. Harris, eds.). The book sold over 10,000 copies and inspired us to edit a sequel, Presumed Incompetent II: Race Class Power and Resistance of Women in Academia (2020).

Drawing upon the lessons of the Presumed Incompetent project and other volumes I have edited, this webinar provides useful information for faculty who would like to edit a scholarly volume. What unique contributions do edited volumes make? Should I invite co-editors? How do I select contributors? What issues are likely to arise in edited volumes that consist of personal narratives? What are some best practices for effective project management? How do I publicize the volume? The webinar will answer these and many additional questions.

Duke graduate students can access this webinar through Duke's institutional NCFDD membership. Find information about how to claim your Duke membership to NCFDD here.
