Call for papers: global publishing early career conference

We are delighted to join Princeton University’s Fung Global Fellows Program and the International Comparative Literature Association as a co-organizer of Global Publishing and the Making of Literary Worlds: Translation, Media, and Mobility. This online conference for early career scholars will combine panels and keynotes on theoretical issues in publishing, with workshops and one-on-one coaching sessions by scholars, translators, authors, and editors at global presses. As a whole, the conference will offer practical advice to early career scholars facing the dual challenges of a shrinking job market and complex publishing landscape.

The three day conference is scheduled to run June 4–6, 2021 and is open to pre-tenure, post-doc, senior graduate student level participants from around the world. Pre-registration is required and space is capped at 250 participants. The deadline for applications is December 18, 2020. You can learn more about the registration process and requirements and submit an application here.

The conference will be co-hosted by Princeton’s Department of Comparative Literature, Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication, University Center for Human Values, and Humanities Council.
