Universitas Press encourages books that try to make sense of thorny issues in all fields of the humanities. Interdisciplinary studies are particularly welcomed, as we strongly believe that all phenomena of human life can be better understood when perceived from various angles. We publish volume-length studies and collections of essays from scholars all over the world.
Our collection, Professional Development for Academics, answers the many needs of the academic community, from studying and research to teaching and learning.
Introduction to Literature: Planning and Teaching a First-year Course
Sylvia Hunt & Cynthia Parr
The introductory course can be used as a catch-all for nearly everything first-year students may need to learn as they begin academic study. There is a difference between streamlining an approach to an Introduction to Literature course and dumbing down the material.
Here, we put together ideas, suggestions, syllabi, suggested readings and tasks that will help instructors deliver the content in engaging ways.
Specialists: Passions and Careers
Eds. Cristina Artenie and Dannielle Joy Davis
Is the pursuit of the doctorate the ultimate intellectual “survival of the fittest” challenge? Are there common characteristics and experiences that result in success while earning the PhD? Can examining the experiences of individuals successful in pursuing the doctorate lead us towards learning how to increase success rates and decrease doctoral attrition? The intent of this work is to address these questions and highlight the experiences of those who have earned or are in pursuit of the doctorate.
