Revise and Resubmit.  Ugh.  Wait, Yay!

Revise and Resubmit. Ugh. Wait, Yay!

Hello Everyone.

We thought you’d appreciate some advice about the revise and resubmit (r&r) processes that define our publishing careers.  In this brief post, we’re sharing two bits of excellent advice on how you can successfully survive the double-sided challenges that go along with the dreaded/welcome r&r.

First, please read Cathy Davidson’s “How to Cope with the Dreaded–I mean, AMAZING–“Revise and Resubmit”” from HASTAC.  Some of you may know that Cathy was scheduled as our Professional Development Day keynote speaker.  Her advice is always on point, and we both think of her as a Mentor.

We also attached an article from The Chronicle of Higher Education, How Your Journal Editor Works by Devoney Looser.

We know it helps to remember you’re not alone.

Take care,

Shelly and Matt

Helpful Resources

Dear Fellows,

At times like this it helps to have good information at hand, so we want to share several CUNY-wide resources. The “CUNY Continuity” page is a place to start:

https://www.cuny.edu/cuny-continuity/cuny-continuity-for-students/

From here you can access University-wide resources as well as each CUNY college’s “coronavirus page” for information specific to the individual campuses.

Because this week is likely an especially difficult one for the CUNY community and for New York City, we also want to mention that CUNY has resources focused on health and wellness, including counseling and mental health services, as well as child care and food security on our campuses. Links to campus counseling centers can be found here:

https://www.cuny.edu/current-students/student-affairs/student-services/counseling/campus-centers/

More general information about health services at CUNY are here:

https://www.cuny.edu/current-students/student-affairs/student-services/health-services/

At some CUNY colleges, individual departments have compiled resource lists. An example of a departmental resource list is the following from Black and Latino Studies at Baruch College:

https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/blackandlatinostudies/?page_id=9

Many campus webpages also point CUNY community members to health and wellness resources outside the CUNY system, including NYC Well Counseling Services:

As ever, and on behalf of our Mentors, we want you to know how thankful we are to have you as colleagues and how deeply we value your participation in the Faculty Fellowship Publication Program.

All our best,

Shelly and Matt

 

Debra Schultz Wins ACLS/Mellon Prize

Former FFPP Fellow and Kingsborough Community College (KCC) faculty just earned an ACLS/Mellon Community College Faculty Fellowship Prize for her project, In the Footsteps of Emmet Till:  And Intellectual and Experiential Engagement with Civil Right Movement Legacies.  Her award will support a participatory research trip with six KCC to civil rights sites in Mississippi.

Debra began her work on this amazing project during her time in FFPP, and we are thrilled to celebrate this recognition of her scholarship as an inspiration for students to learn and to engage racial justice.

 

Congratulations, Debra!
