PhD+: Eric Hayot: “Writing for Publication in the Humanities”

April 22, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm  |  Humanities 2, Room 259



“Writing for Publication in the Humanities”

Eric Hayot is Distinguished Professor of Comparative Literature and Asian Studies at Pennsylvania State University. Professor Hayot will present strategies–both psychological and practical–for writing for publication in the humanities from his recent book, The Elements of Academic Style: Writing for the Humanities (Columbia UP, 2014). His talk will offer specific insights into how to write literary scholarship in the mode that was born out of the influence of philosophy and cultural studies on literary criticism over the last three decades.

Professor Hayot is the author of Chinese Dreams (Michigan, 2004), The Hypothetical Mandarin: Sympathy, Modernity, and Chinese Pain (Oxford, 2009), and On Literary Worlds (Oxford, 2012). He edits the “Global Asias” series for Oxford and serves as Director of Penn State’s Center for Humanities and Information. Learn more at
