One of the blessings and curses of digital humanities is its interdisciplinary underpinnings, which makes for rich scholarly interventions and a real challenge when explaining exactly what to do.
How do we prepare ourselves to explain our scholarship to different audiences, modes of thought, and registers of conversation? How do you describe your work to the media? In a tweet? To a roomful of retirees who asked you to give a talk? Drawing on Aimée Morrison and Roopika Risam’s experiences communicating their scholarship to a range of audiences in multiple disciplines, this workshop will prepare you to talk about your work in a range of formal and informal circumstances.
