AW Workshop 2: Reading and Writing – making sense of literature and how to develop your voice amidst the academic voices of others

Saturday 3 October, 09h00 - 16h00, New Lecture Theatre, Education Department (St Peter's Campus). The time frame covers all 4 workshops.

A key feature of academic writing is the process of writing up your work in relation to the written work of others who have produced research texts that influence your field of study. This is a complex process as it requires researchers to assess written texts in relation to their own focus, context and research question. The scope of existing academic texts can sometimes be overwhelming; making it difficult to sift out what is most useful to you in a systematic and coherent manner. This workshop will focus on practical approaches to reviewing and assessing existing academic texts in relation to your academic project, and will share ideas on how you might strengthen your own academic perspectives and work in relation to the academic voices and texts of others in your field.
