Harness Your Interdisciplinary Superpower

Harness Your Interdisciplinary Superpower

April 26, 2018

Ideas on Fire is heading to Ann Arbor soon to lead a workshop at the 2018 International Conference of NextGen Korean Studies Scholars! We’re going to be talking about identifying and harnessing your interdisciplinary superpower!

Harness Your Interdisciplinary Superpower

Writing and publishing interdisciplinary scholarship as a graduate student comes with a unique set of challenges. You’re trying to find time to write amidst a million other obligations, you’re writing for multiple audiences with different sets of expertise, and you’re often serving as a teaching assistant or instructor in courses that are far afield of your research area or dissertation topic.

But your interdisciplinary training can actually be your superpower.

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to craft a writing routine that fits your real life, use your interdisciplinarity to write and teach a variety of subjects, and plan classroom activities to improve both your and your students’ writing.
