12:30 – 1:30 PM ET

This webinar, geared towards graduate students and early career scholars (but open to all AJS members), will offer tips on designing public lectures based on your dissertation or book research. Pamela S. Nadell, the Patrick Clendenen Chair in Women’s and Gender History and Director of the Jewish Studies Program at American University, will be in conversation with Alanna Cooper, the Abba Hillel Silver Chair of Jewish Studies at Case Western Reserve University. Some of the topics they will cover include choosing a topic for a public lecture, writing a title and description to draw an audience, preparing visuals to accompany your lecture, communicating with an audience, and handling the Q & A.
