Academic Book Week, 23-28 January 2017: Author Talks

A celebration of the diversity, innovation and influence of academic books.

Academic Book Week

Academics and Authors

Many academics here at Derby are also published authors, and we've asked a selection to give talks on their books - find out about the research, what interested them about their topic, what writing the book was like, the publishing process.

All talks are free and open to anyone to attend, staff or student - no need to book, just come along to the talks at KR Library or the Devonshire Library at Buxton.
