How I Write

A Conversation with Sally Kornbluth and Jennifer Ahern-Dodson

Sally Kornbluth (Pharmacology and Cancer Biology) was appointed Duke University Provost on July 1, 2014. As the university’s chief academic officer, Kornbluth leads Duke’s schools and institutes, as well as admissions, financial aid, libraries, information technology and other facets of the university’s academic life. Her writing life includes not only disciplinary research, but also developing university documents such as the Duke Strategic Plan. Provost Kornbluth will share how her discipline shapes her writing life as an administrator and the joys and challenges of writing in a new context.

This event is part of the How I Write series, in which Jennifer Ahern-Dodson talks with working writers across disciplines about their writing lives. What does it look like when they sit down to write? What sustains them in large projects? How do they overcome writing obstacles? When do they find the most joy in their work? Invited guests discuss a range of writing topics, including organizing and managing projects, generating ideas, cultivating creativity, balancing writing research/teaching/mentoring/ administrative commitments, the role of peer review and community support for their work.

Light lunch served. Co-sponsored by the Faculty Write Program and the Forum for Scholars and Publics.
