The GSAS Writing Studio's summer workshop series has ended. Check here again in late August for information and registration for our Fall '19 workshops.
Summer '19 Workshops:
Make a Summer Writing Plan
Set yourself up for dissertation-writing success this summer. In this one-hour workshop, you'll develop meaningful goals and set a plan for reaching them, including identifying support systems, safety nets, and other structures to help you succeed. This workshop is open to Arts & Sciences PhD students at any phase of the dissertation process, but is best suited to those who plan to write actively this summer.
Archive Basics for Non-Historians
Does your dissertation require archival research, but you're not sure where to start? The Writing Studio's consultant-historians are here to help! In this hour-long workshop, we will cover basics: planning an archival research trip and knowing what to expect when you get there; tips and tricks to make the most out of your research time; tools for organizing your research; and ideas for integrating your findings into your writing upon your return. Participants will learn a variety of strategies and will have the opportunity to draft an individualized research plan.
Zotero for the Dissertation
Tips and strategies for using Zotero bibliographic management software to organize, integrate, and cite dissertation research.
Jumpstart Your Prospectus
Join fellow writers to get a running start on your prospectus this summer. In this workshop, Writing Studio consultants will offer strategies and support for developing, exploring and articulating new ideas. Participants will leave the workshop with a writing plan, fresh perspective on their work, and the momentum to start putting words on the page.
