Please join us for breakfast and an informal discussion with historian Jeffrey Wasserstrom to explore questions about the relationship between research, teaching, and public scholarship. Can one's work 'translate' among various venues, forums, and media? How can you navigate between the demands of the academy and your interest in reaching wider audiences? Is public scholarship a form of teaching?
All are welcome, though graduate students in the humanities and social sciences are particularly encouraged to attend.
This conversation is sponsored by Duke University Department of History, supported by its VH@Duke Ph.D. Innovation grant, "Rethinking Historical Pedagogy for the 21st Century" and hosted by the Forum for Scholars and Publics.
