Quotes From This Episode

  • "I think probably one of the biggest things that I’ve come to realize is that the whole publishing enterprise is a conversation...thinking about your scholarship, not in these sort of atomistic chunks, but as part of a larger conversation that both precedes what you’re doing, and will also generate more work and more conversation and more wisdom, and more practical outcomes."
  • On publishing... "The analogy that I use when I'm doing a lot of outreach is 'merging into traffic.' I grew up in Chicago and so when you're merging onto the Dan Ryan, there are lots of other people you have to take into account, right? Nobody's blindly merging onto the Kennedy! And so all those other cars are people having, not the same conversations, but similar conversations, and how does your work contribute to merging into that traffic of a conversation?"
  • "I’m totally convinced...I’m absolutely convinced that the difference between people who are very well published, and people who are not well-published, is this ability to separate themselves from them or from their work."
