A cooperative agreement to support a professional development institute for scholars interested in writing and publishing about technology and digital culture for public audiences. The institute includes four, two-day workshops led by humanities scholars and representatives from commercial and academic publishers.

Given current scholarship trends in the humanities, shifting expectations for tenure and promotion, and new publishing platforms cropping up for scholars and public intellectuals, this series of two-day seminars will focus on writing for a general readership—with a focus on contemporary technological subjects. Lectures and practical workshops from the organizers, as well as visiting experts in journalism, publishing (trade and academic), will cover pitching, proposing, and crafting essays and book manuscripts.
The hosts are Ian Bogost and Christopher Schaberg, founding editors of the Object Lessons essay and book series published by The Atlantic and Bloomsbury. Bogost and Schaberg will draw from their experiences to help participants navigate the new frontiers of academic publishing and increasing pressures on the humanities to make its work legible to broad audiences.
