For Faculty

Stanford Public Humanities aims to empower faculty to engage with a broad and diverse audience beyond the university and contribute to public discourse. 

  • What sorts of pitch topics make publishers of trade books, magazine articles, and op-eds take notice? 
  • How can scholars, whose time frames are often long and whose progress is measured in years rather than days, frame their work to appeal to a market whose values are driven by current affairs? 
  • How can academics manage the contentious social media landscape? 

Through hands-on workshops, events with prominent speakers, and ongoing mentorship, faculty can receive training and support on how to write persuasively across a range of media and where to publish to reach a general audience.

If you have a question, want assistance with a pitch, or have a public endeavor to share, please email Natalie Jabbar, Associate Director of the Public Humanities, at njabbar [at] (njabbar[at]stanford[dot]edu)
