The 2015 – 2016 5CollDH Speaker Series features scholars and artists whose work investigates the constantly shifting boundaries between physical and virtual space, and how such shifts impact how we engage our social, political, and bodily networks: how our worlds are made, and how we can make them differently.

Carole DeSanti, Vice President and Executive Editor at Penguin Random House, will hold a workshop focused on writing, publishing and creative process. The workshop will focus on techniques for becoming your own first editor and best feedback system, address questions about publishing, and engage issues related to shifting from academic writing to addressing a general audience readership.
Carole is known for editing and publishing some of the most outstanding women’s voices of our time, including bestselling author Deborah Harkness, Booker-finalist Ruth Ozeki, Melissa Bank, Dorothy Allison, Terry McMillan and many others. She is also the author of a novel, The Unruly Passions of Eugénie R., published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2012.
This session is appropriate for writers of all levels and stages of work, but it is helpful to have a specific project in mind.
Free and open to the public
