Summer Academic Working Groups 2013
Summer Academic Working Groups are now forming for the 2013 season. Summer Academic Working Groups (SAWG) are clusters of academics working in related fields or on related topics who agree to exchange work in progress and feedback on a regular basis during the unstructured summer months. Participants often find that the deadlines provided by such a group are at least as valuable to their summer productivity as the feedback itself.Participation is open to academics of all levels and disciplines, and there is no charge to participate. More information and the registration form are available at http://lpowner.jayandleanne.com/sawg.Faculty are the fastest-growing segment of participants. Many are working on book manuscripts and other publications; this year we even appear to have a cluster writing textbooks (including mine on social science methodology for undergrads). Social science disciplines are heavily represented, so the quality of feedback is often quite high.Please feel free to circulate this announcement widely.
