Approximate number of student editors

In this class, you will learn about the growing call for scholars to communicate their research to the public and, through course readings and regular short writing exercises, study and practice the genres that academic researchers and other serious thinkers use to shape public discourse. You will also have the opportunity to explore the immediate relevance of an academic research project you are passionate about and “translate” it to reach a public audience. You will read and write in several public genres, including contributing to a Wikipedia article.
