The Junior Scholars Book Development Workshop is a special opportunity for scholars who have not yet received tenure. Junior scholars at the conference have their complete dissertation or book manuscripts discussed in depth by at least two invited senior colleagues with an eye toward preparing the work for publication.
The first Junior Scholars Book Development Workshop was held in October 2012 at Yale University. Six junior scholars were brought together with 12 leading senior scholars in the fields of political science and Middle East studies.
