Object Lessons Institutes

Tempe, AZ; Washington, DC; New York, NY; Tampa, FL

Receipt Deadline: June 30, 2017

This institute is designed for academics and writers who seek to write and publish for broad audiences, particularly about contemporary technology, everyday objects, and digital culture. The institute's workshops--geared to scholars as well as nonfiction writers from across disciplines--aim to better equip participants to pitch their ideas and publish their writing in venues that exist fruitfully between both traditional academic and trade publishing routes. Workshops will be offered at four different locations in fall 2017 and spring 2018.

The hosts are Dr. Ian Bogost and Dr. Christopher Schaberg, founding editors of the Object Lessons essay and book series published by The Atlantic and Bloomsbury. Guest authors, editors, and publishers will help participants navigate the new frontiers of academic publishing.

Dates: Four workshops offered in fall 2017 and spring 2018.
