The Week-Long Summer Faculty Writing Retreat is a dedicated collective community writing environment in support of scholarly productivity and collegial accountability for Brown University faculty working in areas related to the study of race and ethnicity. Participants may use the writing retreat time to work on articles, chapters, books, organizing field notes, proposals, course prep, or other writing-related projects.

There will be THREE unique opportunities to participate in the Summer Writing Retreat:
