Dear all,

I’m happy to announce that Jim Eisenbraun, co-founder of and publisher at Eisenbrauns, has accepted our invitation to come speak to us about turning dissertations into books (Thursday, March 14, at 12:30 p.m., Swift 208). This will be the second session dedicated to this theme, and given Eisenbrauns’ special affinity to the kind of scholarship we do, it promises to be a particularly exciting talk.
Mr. Eisenbraun is generously encouraging workshop participants (be them students or faculty) to think in advance about specific questions/topics they would like him to address. We ask that you please send me your questions/suggested topics this Friday at the latest. 
Finally,In the hope of increasing the level of the conversation you are all encouraged to send me in advance a line or two with your nameyear in programtopic of dissertation and/or research interests
We hope to see you all there.
