Author Meets Critic

Monday, 11 July 2016: 10:45-12:15
Location: Hörsaal 33 (Main Building)
RC32 Women in Society (host committee)

Language: English

This session provides a venue for authors, co-authors or editors to share and highlight the significant contribution of their book with “critics” (i.e. users of their book for research and teaching, reviewers). Monographs, co-authored books, and edited collections published in the English language between July 2014 and June 2016 are eligible for discussion, presentation, and display.
Members of RC32 are invited to submit during this period a title, publication date, publisher, and abstract with key words of any one book publication to Evangelia Tastsoglou before December 30, 2015. Participation in this session will not affect the number of allowable presentations set forth by the ISA.
Authors will speak about their work for about 8 minutes, focusing on the major arguments or features of the book, and, if possible, on some insights or lessons learned in the publication process. Participants will be invited to share their experiences about the impact of the book in their research, independent study, or as an adopted textbook. Up to 11 books will be selected for discussion within the 90 minutes of this session. Books not selected for discussion will be considered for display. Authors are encouraged to bring the actual book, book flyers, and promotional materials to this session.
