The Humanities Center supports faculty authors through a variety of program. In 2020, the center will offer a Writing for the Public workshop. This special workshop is designed for faculty members who seek to write and publish for broad audiences. The workshop will include practical exercises, information on pitching and crafting articles and book manuscripts, and collaborative discussion of participant writing. Participants will leave the workshop with a project proposal or short article ready to pitch or submit for publication.
Writing for the Public will take place Thursday, January 23 and Friday, January 24, 2020. The workshop will be led by Christopher Schaberg, Dorothy Harrell Brown Distinguished Professor of English at Loyola University of New Orleans. Schaberg is founding co-editor (with Ian Bogost) of an essay and book series called Object Lessons, “a home for lucid, imaginative, concise writing about specific things—from conches to neckties, cinnamon ferns to sewing needles.” Schaberg and Bogost won National Endowment for the Humanities support for a series of NEH Institutes on public writing around the United States.
