How To Successfully Manage Multiple Writing Projects for Faculty in the humanities

Facilitator: Marisa Parham, PhD

In this webinar we will discuss strategies for juggling multiple writing projects simultaneously, with brief introductions to some tools that will help you flourish as a writer, no matter your work style. Some attention will also be given to navigating the differences between administrative and scholarly writing, thus making space for the latter all year long.

 

About the Facilitator:

Marisa Parham, PhD, is professor of English at Amherst College, and also the director of Five College Digital Humanities, which is a Mellon-funded grant initiative serving Amherst, Hampshire, Mt. Holyoke, and Smith Colleges, and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Her current teaching and research projects focus on texts that problematize assumptions about time, space, and bodily materiality, particularly as such terms share a history of increasing complexity in texts produced by African Americans.

 

Her most recent projects focus on virtuality and embodiment in Charles Chesnutt, and on religion and American philosophy in Octavia Butler’s literary manuscripts. She is also currently completing a hybrid digital / print project, Black Haunts in the Anthropocene, and is co-editor of Theorizing Édouard Glissant. She holds a PhD in English and Comparative Literature from Columbia University, and is the author of Haunting and Displacement in African-American Literature and Culture, as well as The African-American Student’s Guide to College (1999). When she isn’t writing, Marisa is renovating her house, working on robotics or videogame projects with her two boys, or probably just sleeping!
