Editor in Residence

The UCLA Humanities Editor-in-Residence series, the brainchild of Professor Nina Eidsheim working closely with Barbara Van Nostrand, is designed to offer an opportunity for graduate students and faculty to gain familiarity and practical insights into the monograph process. The invited distinguished fellow will give a presentation on the book proposal process open to the UCLA community before consulting faculty and students from the Humanities, UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, and Center for Performance Studies.

The UCLA Humanities Editor-in-Residence series is created to facilitate long-term relationships between UCLA  and book editors in the academic press arena, thus setting graduate students and faculty up for early publication successes. The UCLA Humanities-in-Residence recognizes that, to quote OUP editor Norman Hirschy, “authors and presses alike share a common goal and purpose: publish new scholarship well and with as broad of distribution as possible.” This series is generously co-sponsored by the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and the Center for Performance Studies.
