Academic Influence Interviews

At AcademicInfluence.com we have the opportunity and honor to speak with many scholars who are highly influential in their fields.

Our interviews typically reveal insights about an academic discipline that prospective students intent on studying that discipline find helpful. At the same time, our interviews explain

  • what top scholars are doing,
  • what got them into their profession,
  • what continues to excite them in their research, and
  • what it’s like being part of the communities into which their studies have led them.

Often we learn that there is so much more happening in a given discipline than is commonly imagined, so that these interviews turn into truly enlightening conversations.

We hope you enjoy these interviews as much as we have enjoyed making them.

We are always bringing out new interviews, so please stay tuned.
