Description. 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.
Learning outcomes. During this workshop, participants will:
- Learn strategies for turning research data into claims and arguments in scholarly writing.
- Gain a greater understanding of how rhetorical concepts such as audience and evidence shape scholarly writing.
- Learn approaches for incorporating scholarship from other sources into their writing.
