NASSR Graduate Student Caucus
“‘What is now proved was once, only imagin’d’; or, What Every Graduate Student Should Know about Journal Publication”

In today’s highly competitive academic job market, journal publications are an essential component of an applicant’s overall profile. For many graduate students, however, the prospect of submitting an essay for publication can be a rather intimidating one. The new NASSR Graduate Student Caucus has therefore invited editors from some of the leading Romantic-era journals to help demystify this process. These experts will address issues such as what makes an outstanding journal article, what weaknesses they find specific to graduate student submissions, how they would describe the specific focus of their journal, and what is their journal’s stance on reviews written by graduate students. There will also be a substantial amount of time reserved for Q & A. This special session ultimately aims to empower future Romanticists with the information required to contribute to the larger scholarly community.
