CFP for Book Manuscript Workshop
The Ann Johnson Institute (AJI) for Science, Technology and Society at the
University of South Carolina welcomes applications for a one-day book
manuscript workshop to be held in September 2020.
This workshop is targeted towards individuals at any career stage who have not
previously published a monograph. The successful applicant will have a
first-time book manuscript near completion at the time of applying. He or she
will invite, and the AJI will fund, up to three senior experts in the authors
field as well as an acquisitions editor from a major scholarly press to
campus. A small group of relevant experts within the South Carolina community
may also attend.
The purpose of this workshop is to support stronger and more rigorous
manuscripts from first-time STS authors. Equally, it is geared toward
developing communities of colleagues from different disciplines and
geographical locations. The AJI is committed to building such communities from
the bottom up, seeding them and positioning them to question and reframe
complex problems. The AJI takes a broad approach to STS, envisioning it in
partnership with historical, philosophical, scientific, engineering and
medical approaches, because at the AJI community is the method.
