Networking for Academics: 5 Places to Start
Linda Greve, Aarhus University
We all seem to agree that a good network is crucial to a nice career. However, “network” as such is just a metaphor for something far more abstract. This talk will investigate the phenomenon of networking in an academic context – the genre, the rhetorical expectations and the contexts, both online and face-to-face. On that basis a more nuanced understanding of what it means to be in a network is presented and implications on strategic networks in academia are presented. The talk concludes with five places to start, when you want a strategic, usable and academic network.
Dr. Linda Greve is an expert in academic communication. She holds a master’s degree in Theology, Rhetoric and Journalism as well as a PhD in Business Communication. She teaches presentation technique and lecturing as part of the professional development at Aarhus University. Dr. Greve has been working with academic entrepreneurs and research presentation for 15 years. Her field of interest is metaphors and academic knowledge communication, which will be the focus of her talk.
