Manuscript Review Program


ManuscriptsThis program offers Dartmouth faculty the opportunity to have book  manuscripts, which are near completion but still open to revision,  read and discussed by experts in a seminar setting. The internal and  external participants are chosen by the Director of the Leslie  Center in consultation with the author. Faculty with projects  addressing humanities themes and methods, who would like to have  their work reviewed, are encouraged to contact the Leslie Center for  more information about how to submit a proposal.

If an author's proposal has been accepted, the Leslie Center will  organize the one-day seminar—inviting the internal and external  participants, and, for the latter, arranging for their travel,  lodging, and honoraria. The manuscript must be submitted by the  author no later than six weeks before the date of the seminar.

Note: The manuscript review meeting is only open to those faculty specifically invited by the Director of the Leslie Center.

Faculty members are not eligible to participate in this program in  the academic year when they are up for tenure or promotion.

This program is run in coordination with the Dickey Center for  International Understanding.

The manuscript review is described further in a recent Dartmouth Now article.


The Manuscript Review Program is funded  with the generous support of the Robert L. Swartz Fund.
