10/26 – From Dissertation to Best Seller (PublicsLab workshop)

The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation started out as Anna Malaika Tubbs’ PhD dissertation in sociology for Cambridge University and ended up as a critically acclaimed and popular publication with Macmillan Publishers.

Writing for broader audiences not only opens doors for academics as writers; making scholarly work more accessible can also open doors for those who are not usually included in academic conversations. In this workshop, Anna will walk participants through conceptualizing their dissertations to reach a much broader audience than traditional scholarly monographs.
