Writing as a Member of an Academic Community – Synchronous Online Workshop

  • This event has passed.

June 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

This synchronous online workshop is taught by Dr. Adeiza Isiaka

Academic writing is a social practice that involves relating with your readers and using the rhetorical strategies of your academic communities. In this workshop, we will discuss how to position yourself in relation to other scholars and present your work as part of an ongoing conversation in your scholarly community. We will explore linguistic features for disagreeing respectfully with other scholars and for making supportable claims. In the workshop, we will examine the linguistic nuances involved in making claims while keeping in mind the social dimensions of writing within an academic community.

This is the fourth of 6 workshops in the Getting Through Graduate Work workshop series.
