DLAC members in Writing Sprint

Members of the DLAC Network – Tori Holmes, Claire Taylor and Thea Pitman – will all be participating in a Writing Sprint coordinated by Modern Languages Open to celebrate Academic Book Week.

Focussed around the key topic of Modern Languages and the Digital, the Writing Sprint draws together experts in Modern Languages from around the UK and beyond, and explores how digital technologies are changing the shape of Modern Languages research and publishing. The form of a Writing Sprint will allow for new ways of thinking not just the content of what is written, but also the process, as new ways of thinking the peer review process and the writing process take place.

Launched at the start of the week, on Monday 9 November, the Writing Sprint begins with seven commissioned pieces of c.500 words from experts in their field who address a particular question within the overall topic. During the week, respondents to each question will dialogue with each piece, nuance it, and shape the debate. By the end of the week, a finalized book chapter will have emerged, which will subsequently be published on Liverpool University Press’s MLO platform.

During the week, come along to the writing sprint blog to see how an academic chapter takes shape. You can also submit comments yourself, although please note comments will be moderated before being published.
