This weeks LRDG talk will be by Sharon McCulloch, who will talk about: What do academics do all day?

Abstract

This talk draws on findings from an ESRC-funded project based in the Lancaster Literacy Research Centre exploring the writing practices of academics in three different disciplines and institutions in England. The talk will discuss academics’ own accounts of the wide range of writing they engage in on a day-to-day basis, and how they manage these in light of sometimes conflicting value systems and priorities. The talk offers an insight into the realities of the academic writing life.
