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 publishing process, writ large. The program has expanded to include Public Scholarship in addition to the Academic Press. The invited distinguished fellow will give a presentation/ panel open to the UCLA community before individual consultations with faculty and students from the divisions of  Humanities and Social Sciences, the Center for the Study of Women | Streisand Center, the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, the UCLA Bixby Center on Population and Reproductive Health.

The UCLA Humanities Editor-in-Residence series is created to facilitate long-term relationships between UCLA  and editors in the academic press arena and the general public, 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.”
