A conversation with Emeritus Professor John Sullivan for writers, scholars and new and not so new researchers. 

After a very brief introduction to the background to and nature of his chapter ‘Research, Writing and a Personal Academic Ethos’ from John, this session is an opportunity for colleagues to engage with/respond to/raise questions and comments about the chapter, which should be read in advance.      

To participate in this session a prereading is required which you can access when you book.
