About this Webinar

Applying to Expository Writing ProgramsMany universities around the country now have writing programs modeled on the one Harvard first developed in the 1980s. These programs offer first-year writing courses aimed at teaching the principles that inform academic writing across the disciplines; to that end, they are generally staffed by full-time faculty who hold a wide range of humanities, social science, and science PhDs. Because many universities require their undergraduates to take first-year writing, hiring in this area remains relatively stable even during our current moment of fiscal uncertainty.

This workshop will introduce participants to the history of the Harvard expository writing model and will offer concrete guidance on how to put together a strong application for jobs of this kind. Dave Hershinow, Director of the Writing Center, will lead the session.

Doctoral students in all areas of study are encouraged to attend.​
