The Semaphore Unworkshop: Research | Writing | Projects

Friday, November 2, 2012 - 3:00pm to 6:00pm

 

The Semaphore Unworkshop
research | writing | projects
FHI Garage, Smith Warehouse, Duke University
Friday Nov 2 :: 3-6pm


Bring what you’re working on -- projects, papers, prospecti, chapters, articles, websites, proposals, you name it -- and we’ll workshop it together!


  • Get and give feedback with emerging scholars in a range of fields including media, technology and digital humanities.
  • Meet new writing partners and collaborators from different disciplines and institutions, in an unconference-inspired, participatory format.
  • YOU are part of the agenda; we’ll make up the schedule collaboratively.


This event was designed with busy scholars in mind.  That’s why the focus is getting feedback and finding collaborators for projects we’re already working on. A Semaphore-sponsored light dinner and happy hour will allow the conversations to continue after the event.

If you’re actively writing, researching, or completing a project, this event is for you!

If you have any questions, please get in touch.  Otherwise, please RSVP at www.semaphoreworkinggroup.org/rsvp

Looks like I won't be able to attend - makes me regret changing my tutoring hours to Fridays. :)

In the Open Source Community, we call these events "Hack Days", but they essentially follow the same model. I host a hack day at NC State with the Linux User's Group about every other month - I'll post the details when we finalize a date this November.
