Call for Applications - Introduction to Scholarly Writing Workshop

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences Center of Excellence in Research, Teaching and Learning (CERTL) is organizing a series of discipline specific writing workshops to systematically guide doctoral students in the College on how to weave data, method, theory and analysis into their work. The primary objective of these writing workshop series is to sharpen research and scholarly writing skills of doctoral students. To kickstart the series, CERTL has organised a workshop on Introduction to Scholarly Writing scheduled to take place on Wednesday 2 June 2021. The workshop will begin with a plenary session on mechanics of both dissertation and journal article writing. This session will introduce the students to the general rubric and practice of integrating theory, data and methods in dissertation/journal article writing. Thereafter, there will be a series of hands-on sessions where assigned experienced senior scholars in the College will engage with specific students’ work in more detail. This will include working closely through drafts of provided papers/chapters.

This is to invite eligible PhD students to apply for the workshop on Introduction to Scholarly Writing.

Eligibility: CHUSS PhD candidates at data collection and dissertation writing levels
