Writer to Writer w/ Ellen Muehlberger

flyer flyer
Sweetland Center for Writing's Writer to Writer series lets you hear directly from University of Michigan professors about their challenges, processes, and expectations as writers and also as readers of student writing. Each semester, Writer to Writer pairs one esteemed University professor with a Sweetland faculty member for a conversation about writing.

This month Writer to Writer welcomes Ellen Muehlberger. Ellen Muehlberger is Associate Professor of Christianity in late antiquity in the departments of Middle East Studies and History at the University of Michigan, where she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on ancient history, contemporary religious traditions, scholarly methods, and Coptic and Syriac language. Muehlberger has held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies. She edited Practice, a 2017 collection of newly-translated primary sources about early Christian education, asceticism, and reading for the series Cambridge Editions of Early Christian Writings, and her new book, Moment of Reckoning: Imagined Death and Its Consequences in Late Ancient Christianity (Oxford) will be available at Literati for purchase.

Writer to Writer takes place at the Literati bookstore (124 E. Washington) on Tuesday, March 19th from 7-8pm and is also broadcast live on WCBN radio (88.3FM). These conversations offer students a rare glimpse into the writing that professors do outside the classroom. You can hear instructors from various disciplines describe how they handle the same challenges student writers face, from finding a thesis to managing deadlines. Professors will also discuss what they want from student writers in their courses, and will take questions put forth by students and by other members of the University community. If there's anything you've ever wanted to ask a professor about writing, Writer to Writer gives you the chance.
