Book Reviews (Humanities/Social Sciences)
Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination

This workshop will provide a short introduction on the purpose and role of the book review, its current place in academic priorities (in arts and social sciences), and what to expect in terms of contracting to write a review for a journal. We shall discuss how best to tackle review writing, dealing with the review of essay collections, reference works/translations, textbooks and monographs. There will also be an opportunity to copyedit and comment upon book review submissions. If possible, please bring a recent book review that you have written in typescript form.
