Refereeing and Peer Review: A Roundtable Discussion
Speakers: Professor Shane Blackman, Dr Andrew M. Butler and Dr Agnes Gulyas (Canterbury Christ Church University)
One of the key things that underlies academic publication is the process of peer review – your fabulous manuscript is sent off to other probably overworked academics who will read your work for no money and help decide whether it will be published, will need to be revised or will end up somewhere else for to gain your intellectual glory.
How does this process work? How should you deal with it? And more to the point, how do you become a gatekeeper too? Come along to find out and share your own experiences.
Professor Shane Blackman is an associate editor of Journal of Youth Studies and is on the editorial board of Sociology, among many others. Dr Andrew M. Butler is an editor of Extrapolation, has peer reviewed for several journals and is still smarting from the report on his last book. Dr Agnes Gulyas is a member of the AHRC Peer Review College and of the Executive Committee of the Media, Communication and Cultural Association (MeCCSA).

Professor Shane Blackman is to interview Wilko Johnson as part of the Canterbury Festival
In 2013, Dr Feelgood founder, Blockheads member, Game of Thrones actor and musical legend Wilko Johnson was diagnosed with terminal cancer. With ten months to live he decided to accept his imminent death and went on the road. His philosophical response made him even more beloved and admired. And amazingly he didn’t die. This evening he discusses his life in music, his life with cancer and his life now in conversation with Shane Blackman, Professor of Cultural Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University.
Date: 2nd November 2016 at 8:00PM
Venue: Canterbury Cathedral Lodge
Before starting his career in sociology and cultural studies, Shane Blackman worked in the music industry as a manager of an Our Price Records store in Oxford Street, London. He teaches pop music and youth cultures, as well as researching sociological and ethnographic aspects of young people’s culture.

For the first research seminar of 2015-16 we are discussing conferences and refereed journals – with at least half an eye on the next cycle of the REF.
Dr Andrew Butler will discuss writing abstracts and how to get the best out of delivering a paper at a conference and Professor Shane Blackman will explore reviewing for journals, getting published and being on an editorial board.
Later in the term we will have a session on Writing for Impact.
