Bringing Scholarship Out of the Ivory TowerJanuary 09, 2014
session was called "Bringing Scholarship Out of the Ivory Tower." Here is the description:
Too often brilliant scholarship gets published in academic journals and then disappears to the shelves of other scholars. Yet, when scholars and their work reach a broader audience through media coverage, it expands the impact of the scholarship and makes the work more meaningful. This session will explore the importance of such public scholarship and specific strategies scholars can employ to attract media coverage for their ideas.I enjoyed giving the presentation and the engaging dialogue with those present. I previously led this session last May (the photo below is from the May presentation).
