In honor of Research Month, Boise State is proud to welcome The Conversation’s Ari Fertig to campus Thursday, April 12, to discuss the faculty benefits of sharing their expertise and research through the independent, nonprofit publisher.

Fertig will be giving short, 30-minute presentations on The Conversation at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the Student Union Building’s Bishop Barnwell room. Each presentation will be followed by the opportunity for faculty to meet with Fertig one-on-one to discuss pitches or to answer questions.

Faculty are encouraged to sign up for a 15-minute time slot with Fertig here:

Last fall, Boise State University became a supporting member of The Conversation, and this exciting new partnership allows Boise State faculty to work one-on-one with its editors to write and publish short articles (800-1,000 words) on topics related to their research, while potentially reaching hundreds of thousands of readers.

During the month of March, The Conversation published articles by historians Lisa McClain and Karen Pinto, and political scientists Matthew May and Stephen Feldstein, with a combined readership of more than 50,000 individuals around the globe.
