Most widely held works by Gregory M. Colón Semenza
Graduate study for the twenty-first century : how to build an academic career in the humanities by Gregory M. Colón Semenza( Book )
18 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 401 libraries worldwide
Many graduate students continue to be regarded as 'apprentices' despite the fact that they are expected to design and teach their own classes, serve on university committees, and conference and publish regularly. "The Chronicle of Higher Education" reports that the attrition rate for American Ph. D. programmes is at an all-time high, between 40 per cent and 50 per cent (higher for women and minorities). Of those who finish, only one in three will secure tenure-track jobs. These statistics highlight: waste of millions of dollars by universities and of time and energy by students. Rather than teaching graduate students how to be graduate students, then, the guide prepares them for what they really seek: a successful academic career
Sport, politics, and literature in the English Renaissance by Gregory M. Colón Semenza( Book )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 321 libraries worldwide
"Sport, Politics, and Literature in the English Renaissance is the first book-length study of the crucial relationship between sport and the political and imaginative literature of Renaissance England. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, educators, medical practitioners, and military scientists were among the many contemporaries who praised sport as necessary and functional - physiologically beneficial to the individual practitioner, vital to the preparedness of the military, and necessary to the maintenance of the traditional class hierarchy."--Jacket

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 319 libraries worldwide
"Breathing life into Milton for the twenty-first century, this cutting-edge collection shows students and scholars alike how Milton transforms and is transformed by popular literature and polemics, film and television, and other modern media."--Publisher's website

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
"A collection of 25 short essays by humanists in all stages of their careers and from various kinds of institutions, How to Build a Life in the Humanities addresses the vexed issue of work-life balance in higher education today. Written in the first person in lively and engaging prose, these essays focus on a wide range of important topics pertaining to the professional and personal dimensions of academic life. Topics include life in a liberal arts college, community college or research university; teaching and paper grading; departmental and university citizenship; imposter phenomenon; post-tenure depression; life as a graduate student or adjunct; religious belief; issues of diversity, including class, race, gender, sexual orientation, and disability; and life in retirement or after leaving the academy. These candid, illuminating essays, which combine practical wisdom with meditative reflections upon the challenges of academic life, will be of interest to humanists of all ranks, from potential or beginning graduate students to seasoned professionals"--

The history of British literature on film ( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
From The Death of Nancy Sykes (1897) to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) and beyond, cinematic adaptations of British literature participate in a complex and fascinating history. The History of British Literature on Film, 1895-2015 is the only comprehensive narration of cinema's 100-year-old love affair with British literature. Unlike previous studies of literature and film, which tend to privilege particular authors such as Shakespeare and Jane Austen, or particular texts such as Frankenstein, or particular literary periods such as Medieval, this volume considers the multiple functions of filmed British literature as a cinematic subject in its own right-one reflecting the specific political and aesthetic priorities of different national and historical cinemas. In what ways has the British literary canon authorized and influenced the history and aesthetics of film, and in what ways has filmed British literature both affirmed and challenged the very idea of literary canonicity? Seeking to answer these and other key questions, this indispensable study shows how these adaptations emerged from and continue to shape the social, artistic, and commercial aspects of film history
