March 25 10-11 AM. Zoom. Publishing your Book During a Pandemic. For information and to register: Cathy Hannabach, founder of Ideas on Fire. Cathy Hannabach

Writing and publishing a book against the backdrop of COVID-19 comes with unique challenges. Global supply chain disruptions, constantly-changing teaching situations, racially gendered reproductive labor expectations, and unpredictable schedules are leaving many scholars with less time and fewer resources than ever.

Join Dr. Cathy Hannabach, founder of the interdisciplinary academic editing agency Ideas on Fire, for a workshop on how to navigate the changing circumstances of publishing a scholarly book right now.

Topics covered include creating a flexible timeline, working well with publishers, getting professional editing and indexing support, and designing a virtual book launch that honors your unique situation and goals.

The workshop will be hosted on Zoom. Attendees will be admitted via waiting room. Please email Pamela Lothspeich or Philip Hollingsworth if you have any questions.

Hosted by the New Faculty Program.


Cathy Hannabach is the founder and CEO of Ideas on Fire, where she helps progressive, interdisciplinary academics write and publish awesome texts, enliven public conversations, and create more just worlds.

She founded Ideas on Fire to harness the collective expertise of interdisciplinary PhDs and provide the editingindexing, and consulting help scholars need to create an impact.

She hosts the Imagine Otherwise podcast, which highlights those bridging art, activism, and academia to build more just futures.

Hannabach is also the author of Blood Cultures: Medicine, Media, and Militarisms (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015), which traces the cultural history of blood as it both enabled twentieth-century US imperialism and was creatively transformed by feminist, anticolonial, anticapitalist, and queer artists and activists, and Book Marketing for Academics (Ideas on Fire, 2016), which teaches you how to harness your resources, skills, and time to build your author platform and get the word out about your awesome new book.
