Academic Writing in the Humanities


In this course participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of academic writing in the humanities in English. Combining theory and practical exercises, participants will learn a variety of skills. These include formulating a strong thesis statement; making a persuasive claim for significance; locating research within a field; understanding the role of introductions and conclusions; mastering the basics of good structure and flow, as well as using outlines and signpost words.

This workshop is especially intended for those in the humanities and, to a lesser extent, the social sciences. It is most useful for PhD students in their second year or later. Participants will have the opportunity to give and receive detailed feedback on their own real-world work on the third day.


You can register for the event one month before the event starts from 9am.
