Location:201D (ICSLAC Seminar Room) St. Patrick's Building
Audience:Current Students, Faculty

Publishing is crucial for shaping one’s career as a scholar in the humanities. In this workshop, Dr. Joerg Esleben (University of Ottawa) will share his experience with academic publications, covering the process of publishing a book, journal articles, book chapters, and reviews. With a particular focus on the conceptualization and the publication of his recent book, Fritz Bennewitz in India: Intercultural Theatre with Brecht and Shakespeare (2016), he will also share his experience regarding the process of translation and acquiring the right to publish translations.

Joerg Esleben is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at the University of Ottawa. He teaches in the German program as well as in the MA program in World Literatures and Cultures, and he is cross-appointed with the Department of Theatre. His research interests include the works of Georg Forster, travel writing, the Faust theme, cultural relations between Germany and India, intercultural theatre, and representations of social justice. He has co-edited the book Mapping Channels between Ganges and Rhein (2008), published articles in journals such as Seminar and Monatshefte, and has contributed numerous book chapters. Most recently, his book Fritz Bennewitz in India: Intercultural Theatre with Brecht and Shakespeare was published by the University of Toronto Press in November 2016.

This session is part of The Friday Table, a series of weekly Friday afternoon events organized by the Graduate Steering Committee for the Centre for Transnational Cultural Analysis (CTCA) and the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture (ICSLAC) at Carleton University. We aim to bolster the Centre’s mandate to bring together scholars and students working with transnational approaches to studies in the humanities through regular, informal workshops, roundtables, film screenings, and discussion groups. The Friday Table seeks to foster collegiality and promote student-led research. Events are free and open to all.
