September 27 – Public Writing and the Early Career Scholar

12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

In a guided discussion that focuses on the topics listed below, graduate students will have the opportunity to develop a plan for how their research can be disseminated to audiences beyond their peers and the academy. We will focus on the importance of tone, prose, and timing as they relate to when and how to join a public conversation. Our conversation will include close structural analysis of two essays written for the public. Topics will include:

  • Best practices
