Dear FFPP Fellows,
A snowy beginning to the spring 2021 semester brings two new videos, plus another opportunity for working with the Transformative Learning in the Humanities initiative.
In the latest installment of our “Mentor Writing Stories” series, Ted Ingram reflects on ways to be intentional about our collaborative writing and editing projects.
See all of our Mentor Writing Stories on our updated Virtual Orientation page.
Ken Wissoker’s latest talk to the CUNY community, “From Dissertation to First Book: A Practical and Conceptual Guide,” is now available. Ken is Senior Executive Editor of Duke University Press and director of Intellectual Publics at the Graduate Center, CUNY, as well as a longtime friend of FFPP. Thank you to Ken and Chelsea Largent for their good work for CUNY.
Finally, applications are now open for the Transformative Learning in the Humanities 2021-22 Faculty Seminar.
Dear FFPP Fellows,
We thought you may wish to know about the following opportunity and event upcoming in the next few days (even as you prepare for Spring semester).
The opportunity is for TLH support in organizing your own event. Proposals for Event Co-sponsorship with the Transformative Learning in the Humanities initiative are due on January 15th (this Friday). You can join the conversation in the TLH Group on the CUNY Academic Commons and the application form can be found here.
And the event of interest is right in line with our mission here at FFPP of moving toward publication. It is sure to be helpful, especially to new Fellows: “From Dissertation to First Book: A Practical and Conceptual Guide” by Ken Wissoker, Senior Executive Editor of Duke University Press and director of Intellectual Publics at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
On behalf of our Mentors, Kelly and I wish all Fellows past and present a happy and healthy 2021. This past difficult year has taught us, once again, that we could not ask for better colleagues, nor could we be more excited about the writing projects you will advance in the months ahead.
Here is to taking some much needed rest and to crafting a reasonable writing schedule over the break. For the 2021 Fellows, we look forward to our Writing Groups in the spring–they are the heart of the Program. And to everyone, many thanks for making FFPP such a special place to do our good work.
All our best wishes,
Matt Brim and Kelly Baker Josephs

I am thrilled to invite you to our upcoming event, “Open TLH: Sharing Tips for Getting to the Finish Line,” a one-hour interactive workshop on Friday, November 20th at 1:00 PM. In this peer-to-peer workshop sponsored by the Transformative Learning in the Humanities initiative (a project supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation), participants will share strategies for the best ways to successfully close what we know has been a grueling semester for all. Bring your best ideas, challenges, successes (and fails). This event is about learning from one another. We’ll be breaking into groups to share our best tools and tips for success with one another—and beyond!
You can join the conversation in the TLH Group on the CUNY Academic Commons.
Take care, Shelly
