About this Event
2130 H Street NW, Washington DC 20052
All GW Faculty and GAs are invited to the 2023 Writing in the Disciplines Distinguished Lecture Events.
Analyzing visual materials is an essential component of writing in many disciplines—and therefore in the work we ask our students to do. Physical scientists and sociologists graph data, art historians excerpt image details, and geographers and internal affairs scholars produce maps. Yet our students often struggle to introduce and analyze visual materials effectively. Through a simple yet powerful vocabulary, this interactive lecture presents an innovative conceptual tool to help students move beyond “See Figure 1.” Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops and examples from their own fields.
Lunch will be provided for those who RSVP.
