278. The Creative-Critical Dissertation
Saturday, 10 January, 12:00 noon–1:15 p.m., Great America, Chicago Marriott
A special session
Presiding: Louis Bury, New York Univ.
Speakers: David Bahr, Borough of Manhattan Community Coll., City Univ. of New York; Jenny Boully, Columbia Coll., IL; John Harkey, Georgia Inst. of Tech.; Tayt Harlin, Graduate Center, City Univ. of New York; Rebekah Rutkoff, Baruch Coll., City Univ. of New York
This roundtable convenes six early-career academic writers whose dissertations straddle the creative-critical divide and thus do not fit neatly within existing disciplinary paradigms of scholarship. Each participant understands creative and critical output as inextricably linked: not just that each practice nourishes the other but that the two are one and the same.
