Behind the Scenes: How to Run Academic Events and Organise Collaborative Publishing

A TASA Postgraduate and ECR workshop, ‘Behind the Scenes: How to Run Academic Events and Organise Collaborative Publishing,’ will be held at Griffith University (South Bank campus) on Thursday September 27, 2018. This is a free workshop for Postgraduate and ECR members of The Australian Sociological Association.

This workshop will feature a panel with Professor Andy Bennett (Griffith) and Dr Brady Robards (Monash), chaired by Ashleigh Watson (Griffith), as well as practical activities aimed at demystifying the organisation of academic events and collaborative publishing.

This event is being run in conjunction with the Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research’s Language, Culture and Belonging Symposium (LCBS2018) – see more info about this symposium event here:

The ‘Behind the Scenes’ workshop will reflect on LCBS2018 and discuss how events like this come together and why. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from and ask questions of Professor Bennett and Dr Robards, and take part in activites that practically unpack planning a symposium, securing funding, running an event, and pitching edited collections to publishers.

Lunch is included for participants.

Places are limited.

Register for this workshop here.
