1.18 Interview with Wendy Roy / On Researching, Writing, and Publishing The Next Instalment
Heeey y'all! On today's episode of Teachin' Books, we're talking about something a bit different: research, writing, and publishing as forms of teaching and learning.
The episode features part of the book launch for The Next Instalment: Serials, Sequels, and Adaptations of Nellie L. McClung, L.M. Montgomery, and Mazo de la Roche, written by Dr. Wendy Roy, Professor of Canadian Literature at the University of Saskatchewan. In the launch recording, Wendy reads from the book and answers questions about the book.
After the book launch recording, Wendy and I circle back to chat more about some of the ways that teaching and learning intersect with the process of preparing and publishing a scholarly book. Topics include: the realities and challenges of archival work, writing as an instructive process, working with research assistants, relationships and collaboration in research, and the possibilities and perils of peer review. Hope you enjoy!
- Get your copy of The Next Instalment: Serials, Sequels, and Adaptations of Nellie L. McClung, L.M. Montgomery, and Mazo de la Roche through the publisher, Wilfrid Laurier University Press. For even more on the book, check out Hannah McGregor's review in Canadian Literature.
- Check out more about the 20/21 Vision: Speculating in Literature and Film in Canada conference that Wendy is organizing.
