The Versatile Scholar: Writing Beyond the Academy

Tuesday, September 20, 2016
11:30 am to 12:45 pm

How can research in the humanities and social sciences make a difference, both inside and outside the university?  How can PhD students use their skills and experience to write for different audiences?  Join us for a panel discussion with Jacqueline Looney, Senior Associate Dean for Graduate Programs and Associate Vice Provost for Academic Diversity; Ed Balleisen, Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies; and Eladio Bobadilla, PhD candidate in history. They'll discuss their writing lives, the challenges and opportunities of writing outside the academy, and why writing matters. Light lunch served at 11:15.

This conversation is part of The Graduate School’s Professional Development Series and it is co-sponsored by the Faculty Write Program, The Graduate School, the Forum for Scholars and Publics, and Duke University Libraries. Questions about this event?
