Increasingly, anthropologists are seeking ways to connect their research, discoveries, and thinking to a broad, public audience. But how? This workshop brings together experts to provide insights into the art and craft of public engagement. Chip Colwell, editor-in-chief of Sapiens, Amanda Mascarelli, managing editor of Sapiens, and Jeff Martin, the AAA’s Director of Communications and Public Affairs will explain the importance of storytelling and how to write for the public. Workshop participants will learn how to master storytelling techniques that speak to the heart as well as the head, and position yourself as a trusted resource, both with the media and in the community. Participants will also learn how to write for SAPIENS and other popular magazines and newspapers. The editors will provide a framework to approach popular writing and an understanding of the publication process. We will close the workshop with a practice “pitch” session, where you get to try out turning your research into a clear, compelling story that will resonate with the listener. Public engagement is a craft that must be cultivated, so please come join us to sharpen your skills and learn about how you can engage a broad public audience to make your research matter.
