Publishing (see also Books; Journals)
Ours is a field that expects members to publish, whether books, journal articles, on-line materials, or in popular outlets. Women have made huge strides in this arena in the last twenty years, producing some of the best-selling and most widely translated materials in the field. Publishing remains a business deal, a way to get the word out while also generating a profit for increasingly fewer companies that are interested in our work. It has been a men’s game, so women need to share with one another how it is done and to insist that publishers consider and promote women’s work. The book displays at conferences, especially the AAR and SBL Annual Meetings, are good places to meet publishing representatives, and begin to develop relationships that will provide a face to go with your written work.
