2014 Scholarly Writing Retreat, July 26-30, Portland, OR, USA

Friends and Colleagues,

For those interested in forwarding their research agenda, I wanted to bring to your attention our annual Scholarly Writing Retreat being organized this summer. The retreat is based on a few simple premises:

(1) a motivated, positive, and rigorous environment creates excellent work;
(2) peer accountability and immediate feedback encourages productivity;
and (3) scholarly work is enriched through collaboration.
The retreat includes a week of focused writing time, structured workshops on productive writing habits, style and grammar for professional journals, editing skills, and more. The goal is for each participant to arrive with a work in progress and leave with a manuscript prepared for submission.

Looking for a German translator/research assistant in Berlin in May

Hi,

I am urgently looking for a German speaking translator/research assistant to help undertake a small amount of paid casual work in Berlin in the first week of May.  There is about 12 hours work availbale.

The project will examine how the public engages with specific representations of the past in a number of everyday landscapes.  In Berlin the focus will be on Stolpersteine.  Research assistance is sought to facilitate vox pop interviews with members of the public who stop at these stumbling blocks.

If you are interested please email me offf the list at danielled@unsw.edu.au and I can provide further details.

Thanks, Danielle.
