Virtual seminar on Writing Extreme contexts

Time for the seventh(!) virtual seminar! This time on Writing Extreme contexts with Professor April Wright and Assistant professor Derin Kent – both at Warwick University. Good writing benefits all scholars, but it seems especially valuable to ECR. We write about contexts that fall outside the life experience of many readers, where contextual detail is essential for grasping the processes we theorize about, and where we face dilemmas between “normalizing” our contexts (to transfer our findings to everyday settings) versus “extremizing” them (to extend the scope of existing theory). April and Derin will draw from their own experiences of conducting and writing up ECR to propose some practical ideas for better writing about the “extreme” and for addressing reviewer comments that commonly arise for manuscripts about ECR during the review process. More information here
