How to Go Public with Premodern Studies


This workshop will introduce participants to strategies and approaches for sharing their work with broad audiences. In particular, our conversations will focus on how to productively engage a diverse range of communities as an expert in premodern culture without leaving academia behind. Through a discussion of readings, a critical evaluation of public-facing resources and programs, and a hands-on session with Newberry materials, participants will develop skills for translating one’s research for non-academic publics, targeting different audiences and meeting their needs, and cultivating fruitful collaborations within and outside of academia.

This program will be accessible virtually in the event that long-distance travel or large gatherings are restricted. Please consult www.newberry.org for up-to-date information.
