Do Your Own Research! Panel Discussion with Independent Scholars
October 20 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
Three independent researchers–whose work has been published through leading publishers Verso, Beacon Press, and AK Press–talk about the practices researchers with no institutional affiliation use in developing factual, truthful information. Does it help to have no university connection, and be free to tell the whole truth? How do public intellectuals earn readers’ trust, in an era when it seems everyone feels entitled to Do Your Own Research? What handicaps or glass ceilings stand in the way of independent scholars, and how do they get around these?
