Cultures of Writing - informal discussion session

Is there such a thing as ‘social science writing’? How does our writing contribute to our sense of belonging to a particular academic community, and others’ perceptions of our academic footholds? 

If you’ve come to social sciences from another part of the academic world, for example, mathematical, physical and life sciences, it can feel like a different writing culture entirely. But this can also be true within a multi-disciplinary department or centre, and even within a discipline. 

If you’ve ever felt your writing is somehow adrift from the writing culture in which you find yourself, come along to this informal discussion session, led by Prof. Alex Betts, to hear him discuss with other academics how they’ve encountered and worked through this experience. As always, plenty of opportunity to connect with peers in a similar position, and ask the panel any questions you may have.
