AUPresses Webinar – Public scholarship: Strategies for amplifying academic publication’s impact beyond the academy

Public scholarship is an approach to academic publication that aims to benefit audiences beyond the academy. Such scholarly work is increasingly recognized by institutions, professional associations, and funding agencies; for example, the National Science Foundation rewards projects that show broader impacts on society, and the National Endowment for the Humanities dedicates extensive grant opportunities to public humanities projects. Across disciplines, scholars can become versed and skilled in the arts of public impact by learning how to focus and frame their expertise in ways that that can reach—and help—broad audiences.  

Christopher Schaberg, director of Washington University in St. Louis’ recently launched Program in Public Scholarship, and Liz Wolfson, PhD, the program’s media specialist, will explore the opportunities public scholarship presents for university presses and scholars alike and effective strategies for pursuing this mode of scholarly engagement. 

Speakers: Christopher Schaberg, PhD, Director of Public Scholarship, Washington University in St. Louis; Liz Wolfson, PhD, Public Scholarship Media Specialist, Washington University in St. Louis
