Venue: Room H204, UCD Humanities Institute of Ireland

Postgraduate students seeking employment in the academy often find little guidance in getting their work published in order to establish a reputation and even less guidance in using digital tools to disseminate their work outside of traditional publishers. This workshop will discuss changes taking place in the system of scholarly communication and give advice for creating scholarship that transcends traditional models of print publishing.

This event is open to postgraduate students only. To register, contact hii@ucd.ie
