A seminar with the CRASSH Postdoctoral Researcher Forum

Have you ever considered writing a popular book, or approaching a trade press with a proposal? Wondered what is involved, how to go about it, what sort of work would be interesting?
Dr Tiffany Watt-Smith’s The Book of Human Emotions is being published by Profile Books this autumn, and in the US by Little, Brown in 2016. Her book On Flinching: Theatricality and Scientific Looking from Darwin to Shell-Shock was published by Oxford University Press in 2014.
Join her for an informal discussion about writing, trade-presses and publication, on 14 May.

Tiffany Watt-Smith (QMUL) is a cultural historian and a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for the History of the Emotions at Queen Mary, University of London. She is currently working on a book about the cultural history of involuntary mimicry from 1850 to the present day. Before returning to her academic studies, Tiffany worked for ten years a professional theatre director, holding full-time posts as associate director at the Arcola Theatre and International Associate at the Royal Court. In 2004 she was a recipient of the Jerwood Award for Directors at the Young Vic.
She is also one of the AHRC-BBC New Generation Thinkers 2014-5.
