JHET Online Writing Workshop

Categories: News

Continuing the sessions of the JHET Online Writing Workshops, we are proud to invite you all to join us for the fourth session (throughout the year we shall have 3 additional sessions, of 2 hours each, and mostly self-contained). The workshop is conducted by Paul Dudenhefer, who had been for many years the managing editor of History of Political Economy (HOPE) and has a vast experience with helping economics students improve their academic writing.
  Although difficulties with writing are not exclusive to non-native English speakers, the fact that the history of economics is a very international community make language barriers a significant factor behind the heterogeneous representation of the works by historians written in English.
  In order to help both non-native and native English speakers improve their writing, JHET is offering these workshops free of charge to anyone interested. We will give priority to early-career scholars (graduate students or those who graduated in the last 5 years), but aim to have a diverse group of participants. The meetings take place through Zoom, which is a software that basically requires people to have their computers connected to internet.
  The fourth meeting will take place next week, June 04 (Thursday), 2020, from 2 to 4PM  UCT+1 (BST; London time), and its description is appended below. If you are interested, please fill in the online form: 
Session 4: Four Principles of Clear Writing
Nouns as subjects; verbs as actions; begin with old information; end with new information. This session is intended for all historians regardless of their native language.” 
  The application deadline is June 02, 2020, and participation is subject to availability. 
  This workshop series was brought to you by JHET with the support by the History of Economics Society (HES) under its New Initiatives Fund (https://historyofeconomics.org/about-the-society/new-initiatives/).
