‘The Conversation’ offers opportunity to communicate research expertise

CATEGORIES: Announcements

"The Conversation" is an independent news and commentary website produced by academics and journalists. Several Iowa State faculty members have published essays in "The Conversation," giving them an opportunity to reach wider audiences through several news outlets, including the Associated Press.

Iowa State will become a member institution of "The Conversation" on Aug. 15, which will provide our researchers and scholars more opportunities to communicate their research expertise.

Interested in learning more? Representatives from "The Conversation" will be on campus Aug. 29 and 30 to explain how the writing process works. If you’re interested in attending, please register here.

Following are a few essays recently published by Iowa State faculty in "The Conversation," as well as some of the many media outlets that picked up the stories.
