"From Reading to Planning and Writing Academic Texts"

This workshop covers the process of developing an academic text at PhD level from the ground up, including: orientation, parameters of text design, finding/choosing/reading/processing academic sources, planning text structure, drafting and revising. Special focus is given to efficient and reliable routines as well as interacting with supervisors throughout this process so as to avoid common pitfalls and mistakes.

Optionally followed by a Writing Evening, 15:00-19:00, NIG, 3A
