Summer Workshop at U of Chicago

The Point magazine is hosting a summer workshop for students interested in deepening their knowledge about the philosophy and practice of “thinking” in public. Participation in the workshop will count for college credits, granted by the University of Chicago. Last year, our own Angelica Ruzanova was one of 16 students selected nationwide for this workshop. 

Check out The Point magazine’s Summer Workshop on public thinking and writing (co-sponsored by The Point and the Parrhesia Program for Public Discourse at the University of Chicago). This fully-funded, two-week program is designed for undergraduate students interested in journalism, criticism, politics, art, and nonprofit who want to learn about and practice engaging the public through dialogue and writing. This year’s workshop on “The Personal and the Political” will be taught by Point editors Jon Baskin and Becca Rothfeld and take place July 29-August 9, 2024 at UChicago. Applications are due March 5, 2024.

If you’re interested in learning more, register for one of our Zoom information sessions, which will take place Tuesday, February 6 at 3pm ET and Friday, February 9 at 11am ET, here or contact workshop coordinator Jess Swoboda with questions at
