Your Inner Public Scholar Wants to Write!
Op-Ed and Public Scholarly Writing Workshop
We all do work that helps our students, scholarly, and professional communities understand the world a little bit better each day. Whatever your area of expertise, you have the capacity to inspire others to think in new ways, to explore what’s around them with a fresh set of eyes, and to feel more at home in the world. Have you considered sharing your insights with even broader audiences—of contributing to publics far beyond our classrooms or professional colleagues?
The Center for the Humanities is teaming up with the amazing folks at TVP Communications to host the second annual workshop on op-ed and public writing on Thursday, March 11, from noon-1 p.m. Whether you’re just curious, have a germ of an on which you would like to work, or have an idea or piece you want to pitch, TVP will help you take the next step.
Curious and want to learn more? Here are a few links to a selection of the public work that emerged out of last year's workshop. Check them out and then join us at the workshop!
