Public scholarship is both an act of translating our knowledge to a general audience–through our writing, speaking, social media, podcasting, etc.–as well as one in which we translate to the academy why communicating to the public matters. Public scholarship, then, is an adaptive strategy to both stay in the academy and develop the opportunities outside of the academy as well. Public scholarship requires building skills to talk to a larger public outside the academy but these skills can also be used in your academic careers too. This keynote is both a practical talk about how to do public scholarship with Kelly and David explaining how they do their different forms of public scholarship (writing and podcasting respectively) and an opportunity for participants to bring their own projects and ask questions about how to turn them into public scholarship.
We have eight spaces available for the Implicit Religion US conference, for audience participation only. The conference is online and free of charge on 31st May 10 - 6pm CST, including the keynote delivered by Dr Kelly J. Baker and Dr David Dault focused on public scholarship. The audience spaces are available to students, early career scholars, independent scholars, and marginalised scholars only.
