Why do I need a personal website and how can I make one?

Personal academic websites are an essential tool for sharing your research and marketing yourself as an academic. Increasingly during the faculty application process hiring committees expect to see your personal website in addition to your standard documents. This workshop will focus on the ins and outs of creating content for your website, including how to frame your research interests, and offer feedback on existing websites. Faculty who have experience building websites and regularly look at them to assess potential colleges will join us. So come with an idea or nothing at all, and by the end, you should have the tools to build a great website.
