The Ph.D. Program in History

at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York

GC Events

October 15 – From Library to the Front Page

Have a killer concept based on your doctoral research and want to share it to a wider audience? Academics are increasingly writing for a variety of media outlets. But how, exactly do you get your work published in the non-academic press? Join us as we talk about what makes for a good story, how to find a place to publish your work, identifying who to send your story proposal to, what makes a good story pitch, what the process is like (from preliminary research to pitching and editorial review), and tips from the front lines of how to build your portfolio.

Dr. Lindsay Sarah Krasnoff is a historian, journalist, and consultant working at the intersection of global sport and diplomacy. Author of The Making of Les Bleus: Sport in France (2013) and Basketball Empire: A Hidden Story of the NBA’s Globalization (in process), she has written for The Athletic, CNN International, ESPN, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, and others. Krasnoff is a Research Associate with the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy, SOAS University of London. She holds a PhD in History from The Graduate Center (City University of New York), MA in Journalism and French Studies (NYU), and BA in International Affairs (The George Washington University).
