Writers@Work

Writers@Work: Where the Work in Question Involves Questions about Work

The Higgins Labor Program's Writers@Work offers writers of all sorts -- social scientists, poets, historians, novelists, bloggers, etc. -- the opportunity to share their unpublished work for constructive criticism. We convene whenever a member of the diverse Higgins constituency has something to workshop. Papers are pre-circulated to enhance the quality of feedback, and participation is by invitation only. Those interested in joining may email Dan Graff, Director of the Higgins Labor Program.

In Spring 2018, we workshopped the following:

  • Paul Ocobock, Assistant Professor of History, a chapter from his manuscript on the production and politics of coffee in Kenya
  • Annie Gilbert Coleman, Associate Professor of American Studies, a chapter from her forthcoming book, Making American Wilderness: A History of Outdoor Guides and their Work

We will resume Writers@Work in the fall 2018 semester. Stay tuned.
