SUBJECT: Registration for Well Argued? Well Written! A Writing Workshop
In academic writing, the argument is all. Whatever the discipline, whatever
the genre - whether a book, an article, or a proposal for funding - the
argument establishes failure or success. This workshop offers strategies for
discovering a cogent thesis from among a welter of illusory choices, for
stating the thesis unambiguously, for qualifying it intelligently, for
defending it vigorously.
Each workshop will meet three times and enroll three participants. Each
participant will be expected to submit, in advance, a document that has proved
troublesome to write or revise. At the group's first meeting, these
documents will form the basis for discussion. Participants will then revise
and meet again for further discussion of their work. The goals of the workshop
will be to transform the submissions into publishable documents.
Facilitated by Elissa Guralnick, Professor of English, College of Music
Enrollment in each workshop is limited to the first three registrants.
Preference will be given to faculty who have not participated previously in an
FTEP writing workshop.
Space is available in the following Spring 2012 workshops:
Workshop III - Tuesdays February 21, 28 & March 6 - 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Workshop IV - Mondays March 5, 12 & 19 - 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Attendance at all three meetings of a workshop is required.
