The Authors and Editors Series celebrates the literary and scholarly books OSU faculty publish by featuring selected authors and editors each year at this series of lectures followed by discussion. The Authors and Editors series of celebrations are made possible through a partnership with the Center for the Humanities. A list of all literary submissions by OSU authors and editors will be acknowledged and information regarding their literary work is available below.

Each year OSU Faculty publish a remarkable range of literary contributions. Publication of these books is an important dimension to faculty creativity that goes through a rigorous peer review process and is an important part of validating their work. A selection of OSU authors will be honored during a series of authors lectures in April, at which time, all OSU authors will be acknowledged and information regarding their literary work will be available for attendees. 

Please submit the book details for authors and editors in your unit that have been published with a 2021 copyright date no later than January 21, 2022.
