The Editorial Director Sharmila Sen will talk about Harvard UP's publishing in film and media studies as well their new celebrated project Racism in America: A Reader (2020) which you can download for free now. Then you will learn from Harvard UP's newest acquisition editors Joseph Pomp and Emily Silk on how to write a book proposal and what they are currently acquiring and publishing at Harvard University Press.


As per usual the format of our Cinema Cocktail Hour: Whetting Our Appetite for the Future of Cinema event will be a conversation between our guests and a faculty member and student. Thanks to Associate Professor Steve Choe and Tatiana Anoushian, President of the Cinema Studies Graduate Students for engaging our guests before we open it up for Q&A with our community.
