The Open Book: Stories of Academic Life and Writing or Where We Know Things

The Open Book: Stories of Academic Life and Writing or Where We Know Things By Ninna Meier, Charlotte Wegener
English | PDF | 2017 | 95 Pages | ISBN : 9463009876 | 2.3 MB

The Open Book is a radical genre blend: it is an experimental co-memoir exploring the role of writing in academia. It contains stories about life without censoring and without distinguishing between traditional work/life domains and academic/non-academic ways of writing. This is done through discussions of conferences, research collaborations, supervision, taboo pleasures of ‘fun’ writing projects, the temptations of other work, and the everyday life encounters and experiences that stimulate academic thought and writing.
