Bring Ideas to the Public Arena through the Next IRIC Lunch and Learn

April 17, 2019

College of Law Professor Anastasia Telesetsky and Professor Adam Sowards in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences invite all U of I researchers and academics to join their informal Lunch and Learn conversation titled, "Going Public: Ideas for Getting Scholarly Ideas into the Public Arena" at noon Thursday, April 25, in the IRIC Atrium.

Through informal discussion, Telesetsky and Sowards will provide tips and suggestions for getting short pieces published in The Conversation and other online academic-oriented platforms. They will also discuss the public knowledge benefits of pursuing certain publication opportunities, as well as some of the potential drawbacks, such as no institutional credit for publication. Part of the session will also include group brainstorming about venues where researchers could increase public awareness of scholarly ideas.

This presentation is part of the IRIC Lunch and Learn series, which allows students, faculty and staff to share and cross-pollinate ideas in a fun and informal lunchtime setting. All are encouraged to attend and participate in discussion. Free drinks and snacks are also provided.
