The location of the workshop has been changed due to a large number of responses. The Workshop will be held in the Shumaker Research Building, room 139.
Scholarly writing is rarely limited to simple reporting of data or summary of research. Most scholarly writing you, as a graduate student will be ask to do carries with it the expectation that you will take a position, through analysis, evaluation, or theorizing. In other words, most scholarly writing is expected to contain a coherent argument supported by relevant evidence. In this workshop we will discuss how argument works in different kinds of scholarly texts and how you can can produce writing that fulfills these expectations.
