Workshop: Writing Effective Literature Reviews 

Wednesday, 8/3, 1 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. on Microsoft Teams. 
Register HERE by 7/21. 

How do you effectively put your sources in conversation both with each other and with your own arguments? In this workshop we will deconstruct literature reviews and you will learn tools to help you more effectively frame sources. Together we will look at examples to better understand what readers might expect from a literature review, and then discuss how to develop your own work in light of your goals and your readers’ expectations. In developing techniques for writing literature reviews, we will also be developing tools to frame sources for other documents such as seminar papers, dissertation proposals, and dissertation introductions.
