If you haven’t published yet, don’t worry, there are other options for you! Digital media technologies have become increasingly important in academic life, offering new opportunities and new challenges to get your academic voice heard outside of peer-reviewed journals.
Digital technologies provide academics an array of platforms on which to share their work, broaden its reach and impact, gain recognition, and engage broader audiences. This panel event brings together prominent public-facing academics across fields to discuss best practices for GC students to cultivate, communicate, and connect their research to diverse stakeholders in innovative ways.
Attend and learn how to:
- Connect and cultivate non-traditional publishing opportunities
- Publish your research through blogs, op-eds, social media and online repositories
- Brand your unique voice for maximum impact and effectiveness
- Network with diverse audiences and stakeholders through digital platforms
- Learn how to make your innovative engagement count in legacy academic institutions
- Navigate the politics of engaging the public on important social issues
Panelists include GC alumna Dr. Kara Alaimo (Communications at Hofstra), Dr. Katina Rogers (the Futures Initiative at GC), and Dr. Jessie Daniels (Sociology at GC). The event will be moderated by Polly Thistlethwaite, Chief Librarian at the GC.
The panel will be followed by an interactive Q&A.
