This session will provide an overview of ways to show who you are, and to share your research with a general audience through media like websites, blogs, Instagram, and Twitter. Faculty members who have successful online presences will share their tips and advice for both novice and seasoned scholars. A follow-up session, held in Fall 2016, will focus in-depth on the practice of using these media sources with a full session dedicated to blogging; the second session will be held for a small group of applicants.
