Mickey Mouse and Milton: Book publishing in the humanities

Blaise Cronin, Kathryn La Barre

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report the results of a survey of tenure and promotion criteria in university departments of literature and language in the US. It is clear that the publication of a scholarly monograph remains a conditio sine qua non for the awarding of tenure. We analyze the language of institutional guidelines and standards: these range from the highly concrete to the intentionally vague.
