Co-sponsored by the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies and the Office of the Vice President for Research, Book Ends—an Obermann/OVPR Book Completion Workshop—supports University of Iowa faculty from disciplines in which publishing a monograph is required for tenure and promotion. The award is designed to assist faculty members in turning promising manuscripts into important, field-changing, published books. Read more about the program.

Interested applicants are invited to learn more about the program and application process at a virtual information session on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2023, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Obermann Center Director Teresa Mangum will share her vision for the program and answer questions. Also on hand will be a former Book Ends faculty participant.

Applications for 2023-24 Book Ends workshops are due Feb. 15, 2023 (5 p.m.).
