In anticipation of the presidential administration, CRASE recognizes the need for research and scholarly activism that confronts and advocates for urgent social issues. The CRASE monthly Scholar Activist Writing Group provides a space for producing public scholarship such as op-eds and blog writing. New and seasoned writers are invited to collectivize around issues emergent from the incoming presidential administration. During the two-hour session, writers will pitch and draft ideas and receive feedback. Brief discussion sessions will focus on how to best communicate advocacy in the form of public scholarship and guidance for the submission process. The majority of the time will be spent writing and lunch will be provided.
