Writing an Abstract

Thursday, October, 29, 2020, 4:00-5:30 pm

This workshop is designed for graduate students who want help with writing an abstract for conference presentations/papers as well as journal articles. We will look at samples of successful abstracts, discuss the anatomy of a scholarly abstract, and learn how to use specific and targeted language.

Undergraduate Writing Clinic

Wednesday, November, 11, 2020, 12:00-1:00 pm

How do you get started on a tough assignment? How do you move from a general topic to a specific argument? How do you contextualize that argument in a way that makes it matter to your readers? How do you organize claims and sequence your paragraphs? How do you conclude an argument without sounding redundant? How do you make it all flow? How do you revise things to make it even better?

This writing clinic is designed to increase your ability to make a compelling argument in the most effective way. Join us for any or all of the topics to learn useful strategies for navigating the conventions of academic writing.
