Academic Writing for Graduate Students Positioning Yourself as a Junior Scholar

This seminar-style workshop series is designed for graduate students for whom English is an additional language (EAL). The workshop focuses on writing tasks that may be required in the earlier stages of a graduate program.  You will learn how to apply your analytical skills to the discourses of your chosen disciplines and explore how effective academic writing in Western scholarly tradition is achieved in order to position yourself as junior scholars in your chosen academic communities. Students will complete several reading, writing, and grammar tasks, all of which will be used to provide personalized feedback.
