In 2013-2014, WIDE will focus on “unprofessional writing.” That is, we believe the present moment and the near future are marked by the “unprofessional”: makers, hackers, groups, communities, and robots. The asymmetrical is more relevant than the symmetrical, the informal more than the formal.

As always, WIDE is committed to creating new knowledge, preparing new generations of researchers and leaders, and so impacting the world. We will express that mission via our focus on the unprofessional.
