Lavender Languages | 2013 Special Events

Writing for Professional Journals:
A “master class” conversation with Tom Boellstorff

Ethnography and Virtual Worlds

Friday, February 15, 2013, 9:00–11:00 a.m.
Butler 6th Floor Conference Room

This is the opening event for the 20th annual American University Lavender Languages & Linguistics Conference.

This workshop is designed specifically for graduate students, although anyone is welcome to attend. 

Drawing on his recent experience as editor of the American Anthropologist, Prof. Boellstorff will discuss some of the problems that frequently appear in manuscripts submitted to professional journals and explore ways to avoid those problems when preparing a manuscript.    

There will be time for question & answers throughout the workshop.

To facilitate discussion and to “ground” the discussion in real-life experience, Prof. Boellstorff is willing to provide comments on up to four (4) article manuscripts submitted to him in advance by workshop participants:

  • Ideally the manuscript should be 8,000 words maximum, all inclusive (including endnotes and bibliography); Prof. Boellstorff may address only part of manuscripts that exceed that limit.
  • To have your manuscript considered, please email your article manuscript to Prof. Boellstorff at no later than Monday, February 11, 2013. The first four manuscripts submitted will be discussed by Prof. Boellstorff during the workshop!
