Nebraska faculty have a unique opportunity to elevate their research and scholarly expertise on a national stage. During campus information sessions Jan. 22-23, faculty can learn more about an opportunity to write opinion pieces for popular media outlets. The university recently joined a partnership with The Conversation, an independent, nonprofit news outlet that combines academic rigor with journalism excellence. The Conversation’s aim is to improve public discourse on a range of topics: arts and culture, economy and business, education, environment and energy, ethics and religion, health and medicine, politics and society, and science and technology.
On Jan. 22-23, University Communication and the Office of Research and Economic Development are hosting information sessions for potential UNL authors, with support from the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer. The Conversation’s Eric Zack, director of university relations, will lead the sessions.
Other sessions are available (see registration form for details).
For more information, contact Leslie Reed, director of public affairs, 402-472-2059.
