ELI 621: Dissertation Writing and Writing for Publication II

Permission of Instructor Required

Prerequisite: ELI 620

In this course, PhD students who have completed ELI 620 and are engaged in a major writing project as a part of their program continue refining their writing in the academic genres that they are expected to produce, such as:

  • Papers for publication (abstracts, introductions, and discussions)
  • Book reviews
  • Dissertation proposals
  • Dissertation acknowledgements
  • Texts needed for the job market

Participants refine their ability to handle complex writing tasks such as creating a research space, imposing order on previous work, maintaining a clear, consistent argument, writing to different audiences, and negotiating knowledge claims. Integral to the course are regular one-on-one consultations with the instructor.
