Academic craft

Here, I post interviews about the ‘crafts’ of academic work, mostly for students.

 

Academic writing

Over the Fall semester of 2018, I recorded two series of interviews with Thomas Basbøll about the practice of academic writing.

 

What is academic writing? 

 

Practicing writing, practicing knowing (and how to structure papers, theses and essays)

 

You can read my (crude) summary of Thomas’ ideas here.

 

Academic reading

In April of 2020, I had a conversation with Dan Kärreman about how to read academic texts. We discussed why reading is hard, the genres and conventions of academic papers and how you might approach reading difficult papers.
