Today for our discussion of journal publication, we have a special guest, Heloise Abtahi, the managing editor of ESQ. She’ll be with us for the first half hour or so.
Next week, we will have our in-class conference in the Bundy Reading Room.
Conference papers should be 15 minutes long, or about 7-8 pages. This paper, which is a short version of your longer paper, is sent to your respondent. You don’t have to send it to me.
Respondents will prepare a 3-5 minute commentary (can be bullet points) discussing strengths, areas for more development, and future directions.
The full version of the paper is due to me on 12/10, unless you take the extension.
