Global Publishing and the Making of Literary Worlds: Translation, Media, and Mobility

Online Early Career Conference | 4-6 June 2021

The Princeton University’s Fung Global Fellows Program, the International Comparative Literature Association, and Princeton University Press are organizing an online early career conference for June 4-6, 2021. The conference joins theoretical issues addressed by scholars and editors with practical workshops in global publishing led by publishers from the US and other parts of the world.  We expect this conference will break new ground intellectually as its practical publishing sessions offer information and advice to the next generation of scholars who face the ongoing challenges of a shrinking job market and complex publishing landscape.

This 3-day online conference will accommodate 250 registered early career participants (pre-tenure, post-doc, senior graduate student level) from around the world.  Registration requires uploading a book description and, if desired, also an abstract for a panel discussion on one of the conference themes.  A $50 fee covers the entire conference, including one-on-one coaching sessions offering publishing advice on the participant’s submitted book description.
