Past Event

Writing Inside and Outside the Academy with Professor Marco Tedesco

October 28, 2020
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Co-sponsored by the Undergraduate Writing Program and the School of Professional Studies About this Event In the 21st century, scholars must write for a wider range of purposes and publics than ever before. They write to share their work with researchers in their fields and across disciplines. Many scholars also write to reach readers in the public sphere. Join Dr. Nicole B. Wallack, the Director of Columbia’s Undergraduate Writing Program in the Department of English and Comparative Literature for a conversation with Prof. Marco Tedesco, to discuss bridging the worlds inside and outside of the academy through his writing. We will explore the diverse roles writing plays in the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and the professions. He will offer us glimpses into their writing habits and practices. He will share what they find creative in their writing projects and processes. He will consider the challenges of writing for their disciplines and for general readers. Attendees will have an opportunity to pose questions to our guest during our Q&A. Writing can feel daunting at the best of times. We hope you will join us to explore how we can reach new readers in these especially challenging times. We look forward to seeing you!
