1.18 Interview with Wendy Roy / On Researching, Writing, and Publishing The Next Instalment

Heeey y’all! On today’s episode of Teachin’ Books, we’re talking about something a bit different: research, writing, and publishing as forms of teaching and learning. 

The episode features part of the book launch for The Next Instalment:  Serials, Sequels, and Adaptations of Nellie L. McClung, L.M. Montgomery, and Mazo de la Roche, written by Wendy Roy, Professor of Canadian Literature at the University of Saskatchewan. In the launch recording, Wendy reads from the book and answers questions about the book.

After the book launch recording, Wendy and I circle back to chat more about some of the ways that teaching and learning intersect with the process of preparing and publishing a scholarly book. Topics include:  the realities and challenges of archival work, writing as an instructive process, working with research assistants, relationships and collaboration in research, and the possibilities and perils of peer review. Hope you enjoy!
