Broadening the impact of one’s scholarship requires mastery of a range of rhetorical registers. Even when applying for funding from a panel of one’s peers, there is no guarantee that reviewers will be familiar with concepts and vocabulary at the cutting edge of your subdiscipline. The stakes of being able to widely communicate one’s findings increase when making pedagogical adaptations for students of at varying levels of academic preparation, or attempting to convey the significance of one’s work to members of the general public. Please join a discussion with faculty and staff colleagues from a variety of backgrounds sharing tips and techniques under the broad heading of Writing for the Non-Specialist Audience.

Thursday, February 11th, 4:15 – 5:30 p.m., Hedge 208
Light refreshments will be provided, so we ask that you RSVP to for an accurate count.

Co-sponsored by Writing at Bates, and the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research Compliance
