Junior Scholars Workshop at SLA Boulder 2022

Do you want feedback on your latest writing project?

Would you like to meet collegial peers from other institutions?

Would a friendly deadline help you get that article or chapter finished? 

If so, come to the SLA 2022 conference in Boulder! Or participate online!

Inspired by another section’s successful launch of a similar event, I am organizing a free workshop for junior scholars, broadly understood as anyone not tenured and post- (or practically post-) Ph.D. Workshop participation is open to all junior conference attendees whether or not they are presenting a paper or poster in a different session.
The goal is to take advantage of this gathering to create a supportive, collegial, and productive space for junior scholars in linguistic anthropology as we navigate the publishing demands of the early postdoctoral years and prepare to become the future leaders of SLA.

The format is as follows: 
1. Interested participants should submit an abstract for the article or chapter they would like to workshop using this Google form by March 14
2. I will then group participants into threes, loosely based on shared interests and whether attending in person or virtually. 
3. Then, by March 31, participants will share their manuscripts with their small group. 
4. During the April workshop session (in person or virtual), the three of you will share your feedback with each other and walk away with an improved manuscript and a larger professional network. 
While the workshop is free, participants will need to register for the conference. In addition, there may be an additional step to register for the workshop beyond the Google Form – details are in the works and will be communicated to those who have completed the form.
