Situating Yourself in a Scholarly Conversation
Fri Mar 7, 1-2:15pm
230 Scott Hall

Scholarly writing is paradoxical: you're asked to position yourself in a pre-existing debate while also transforming the terms of that debate. Why is this so? For starters, academic readers seek to understand the "new" in relation to the "old." This workshop will equip you with several strategies for using scholarly sources to develop an original argument that attends to a current issue in your field. Bring your laptop with access to your project-in-progress.
