Mike Rose, Exemplar Award

Mike Rose
Winner of the 2012 Exemplar Award

Mike Rose offered these words of advice to us as a community (paraphrased):

1. Develop what jazz musicians call “big ears”
Read: read outside of the discipline, read and experiment with different kinds of inquiry
2. Connect your academic work to the world outside of the academy
Listen to the news and think about what touches you. Take your work out into the world.
3. Seek the public sphere
Seek the widest audience possible. Frame a career and a writing style that has a public reach. And, write about the classroom.

The full remarks will appear in CCC.
