Graduate Writing Workshop: Part II

LSC - Friday, February 7, 2014; 3:00 – 4:30 PM, Crown Auditorium

This workshop is the second writing workshop in our series.  You don't need to have attended Part I to attend - this is open to all Graduate School students.

Expectations for scholarly research are often fluid and confusing; this is in no small part due to the manner with which we interact with our sources. This interactive graduate student workshop is designed to reconsider the roles and relationships we form during our research and writing, particularly with sources but also with our own sense of investment in research, academic recognition, and publication. How and why do we select sources, and then how do we connect with them? How do we use these sources to support or empower our reasoning and overall purpose? What are the benefits and disadvantages that accompany our source choices? How are summary techniques, framing, analytical reference, analytical reaction, and authority vital elements we should not only be aware of, but prepared to use effectively and efficiently? The workshop is not designed to offer a formula, rather it is expected you will develop a more personal and confident application of your own sense of disciplinary expression. The workshop will be conducted by Michael Meinhardt, English Instructor.
