What are the advantages of publishing in widely-read media in addition to academic journals? How can academics build the skill set they need to be read widely, and what are the risks of collaborating with media outlets that are free to edit researchers’ comments and writing? In this session, two Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation scholars recount their experience in collaborating with The Conversation Canada, a new national platform that helps researchers reach an international audience without relinquishing their say on how their work is portrayed. Come with your story – and a pen!
This event is being hosted by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation.
Speakers: Caroline Lieffers, Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation scholar and doctoral candidate in history at Yale University; Vinita Srivastava, Commissioning Editor for Culture & Society, Critical Race, and Arts at the Conversation Canada; Zoe Todd, Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation alumna and Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Carleton University
