How to Read

Today, I interviewed Dan Kärreman of Copenhagen Business School about academic reading. We talked about why reading academic papers is difficult (by design, almost), the different genres of academic papers and how papers are actually meant to be read. In these times, where the interactive parts of university education are locked-down and studying is homework only (pun intended), many will be reading in isolation and without the usual structures that are meant to make inaccessible texts accessible. We reasoned that some tips for how to read might be helpful.


The interview video (complete with work-from-home backgrounds) is on Youtube. You can also see it on my page about aspects of ‘academic craft’.
