Book Ends Information Session (virtual)

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 Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2024, from 8:30 to 9 a.m. Obermann Center Director Luis Martín-Estudillo will share his vision for the program and answer questions. Also on hand will be former Book Ends faculty participant Paula Amad (Cinematic Arts).

Applications for the latest round of Book Ends workshops are due Sept. 19, 2024 (5 p.m.).
