My name is Michelle Moravec, and I am an associate professor of history and women’s and gender studies at Rosemont College in Philadelphia. I study feminism, culture, and the intersction of both with social activism.
I received my Ph.D. from UCLA in women’s history. I dove head first into digital history during my sabbatical in 2011-2012 and have become most interested in corpus analytics. I “write in public” which means I use google docs to make public the process of academic writing from start to finish.
What I'd like to Get Out of the Workshop
I have a manuscript I worked on during sabbatical that didn’t fit into my current book project. I’ve been sitting on it for over a year and I need a push to get it out the door. I suffer from the “never good enough” syndrome.
My dissertation writing group taught me the benefit of working with peers. Over the years I’ve participated in a number of online and in person writing groups. I have a broad background in the humanities and much of my work is interdisciplinary, so I think of myself as the informed but not expert reader.
