UT Austin Faculty Author Event

In an effort to better celebrate the work of UT Austin faculty book authors and provide an opportunity to learn more about the breadth of scholarship taking place on campus, Provost Maurie McInnis hosted the inaugural Annual Faculty Authors Reception on Jan. 10, 2019. The event showcased the books written by faculty members published between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018.

“I want us to have an opportunity to celebrate what are remarkable and often multiyear accomplishments,” said McInnis, who also is the university’s executive vice president. “We don’t often slow down enough to say congratulations and to admire the accomplishments of what really are magisterial works.”

The Annual Faculty Authors Reception will take place every January to celebrate the books published during the previous calendar year. All faculty members will be notified during the fall semester when submissions are open for the January reception.
