Writing Residency Headshots

In academic writing there is a debate about the extent to which ‘I’ should be used but in the Sociology Department we encourage students to engage with the ‘I’ in assessments that ask for reflective writing. Students enjoy this challenge yet sometimes they also struggle to find ways to express a sense of ‘I’ that also engages with the academic literature. In this year’s Sociology in Action week we are exploring this struggle and offering students opportunities to work with professional creative writers to develop their writing style to include ‘I’ across intersecting identities.

In our Sociology in Action project, at the end of the Summer of 2020/21, Durham's Sociology Department will be working with a group of three creative writers to run a short residency working with students and staff from within the Sociology Department, the wider University and beyond the University.

Come and meet our three writers, Shagufta K Iqbal, Catherine Wilcox and Okechukwu Nzelu and find out more about the programme.
