William Germano: On second thought – How to revise academic writing and why

Research, writing, revising, publication: these are the four seasons of a scholarly book's life. Of these, revision can feel both urgent and elusive. In this talk, and the Q&A to follow, we'll explore how to go about revising what scholars produce, either in the middle of the writing process or as a complete draft.

This talk is targeted at postgraduate students, though anyone is welcome to attend.

germano image 2019William Germano needs little introduction – his articles, columns and books on the importance of clear, academic writing are a delight to read, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring Professor Germano to Otago. Professor Germano has written on Shakespeare, film, opera, the history of the book, and the writing life of scholars. For over twenty years he directed programs in scholarly publishing, first as editor-in-chief at Columbia University Press and then as vice-president and publishing director at Routledge; during his publishing career he developed wide experience with disciplines in both the humanities and social sciences.
