More Than 15 Minutes of Fame: Media Relations and Knowledge Translation

Have you been asked to do an interview with the news-media?  Have you thought about how you might explain your research or a current event to the general public through the news-media?  Have you wondered what “knowledge translation” looks like or how to do it? This workshop is designed to help you plan and prepare for each of these scenarios, so that you’re ready to share your work with the public.

This professionalization workshop will feature the following presentations:

  • Larysa Woloszansky, UofT Media Relations, will discuss how her group can assist you in connecting with various news agencies and will share some of the things to keep in mind when agreeing to do an interview, whether about your own research or current events.
  • Dr. Michelle Cameron will discuss what to expect when conducting interviews directly related to your new publication or informing the public about other aspects of your research through news-media.
  • Walter Callaghan, PhD candidate in the Dept. of Anthropology, will provide insights and lessons-learned from his extensive experience in doing interviews with news-media on current events and activism.

This event is hosted by the AGSU and co-sponsored by the Department of Anthropology.
