“Getting It Done: Strategies for Writing and Productivity”
Monday, November 14, 12:30 to 1:30 pm
UConn Humanities Institute, Homer Babbidge Library, Fourth Floor
The Junior Faculty Forum welcomes its members to our Fall 2016 professionalization event: a panel on finding the time, and the strategies, to continue research and writing amid the many obligations academics face, especially teaching, service, and familial responsibilities. Our panelists will include:
Liz Holzer, Associate Professor of Sociology and Human Rights, on making the most of a teaching release,
Diane Lillo-Martin, Professor of Linguistics, on the challenges of writing book-length scholarship, and
Sarah Willen, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, on balancing productivity and family obligations.
The session will open with brief comments from each of our panelists. This will be followed by discussion and Q&A, as well as an opportunity for interested participants to form writing groups.
