Grad Chats: Finding a Research Focus through Creative Writing

Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Uris Hall, G-08
Central Campus

The process of developing a PhD, its contribution, and your argument is an ongoing journey: from an initial hunch and hook, the development of a proposal, to the research and writing process itself. In this workshop, we will first share where we are in the PhD writing process and explore the ways in which writing is analytical and emotional work. Second, we will draw on a selection of creative writing exercises that help you find a fresh and energizing way of articulating your research focus.



Grad Chats: Conversations on International Research and Practice is a series hosted by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies to support graduate students with interdisciplinary training and planning around conducting international research.
