Public Writing Workshop

Fall 2019

Taught By: Jeffrey Goldfarb

Section: A

CRN: 7851

Credits: 0

Did you ever think that your research project, perhaps your dissertation research, might be of interest to readers beyond your professors and other scholars in your disciplinary field of inquiry? Have you wondered how the theoretical developments you are following, to which you hope to contribute, might actually change the course of human events? Have you noted and been frustrated by the gap between the academic field and public life, concerned that the world of scholarship seems to have little or no effect upon the world of consequential public debate and action? This workshop is being offered to address this concern and positively answer these questions. Centered on writing and publishing skills, it is dedicated to the development of public social research. The goal of the workshop will be to cultivate student projects for publication to readers beyond the academy. Experienced public social researchers, including academics and journalist, will meet with the workshop participants to share their perspectives on their work, and work with the participants to develop their work for publication for a broader public. Pieces will be prepared for Public Seminar, but also for other publications of the participants choosing. All students at The New School for Social Research are welcome to enroll. Meeting six times in the course of the semester. Jeffrey C. Goldfarb is the organizer of the workshop. Guest writers from around the university and beyond will join the workshop as it progresses.
