Erica Armstrong Dunbar Writing in the Disciplines Workshop

Tue, 20 February, 2018 3:00pm

Writing in the Disciplines is proud to present Erica Armstrong Dunbar, discussing her writing practices both within and outside professional academic history. She is the author of A Fragile Freedom: African American Women and Emancipation in the Antebellum City (Yale University Press, 2008) and National Book Award Finalist Never Caught: The Washingtons' Relentless Pursuit of their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge (Atria Books, 2017).

How does she anticipate her readers when writing for a primarily academic vs. more public audience? Does it change her research and writing process? her level of complexity or of detail? her tone? Bring your questions--she'll have some for you!

Limited seating is available for current WID GAs, WID faculty, and UWP Faculty.
