Advance registration is required for the graduate student breakfast. The breakfast features the special panel “Embracing Collaboration: Incorporating Writing Groups into Graduate Research.” The fee for this event is $8.
Scholars engage in constant collaboration, whether writing to publish, discovering new ideas, or completing coursework in graduate school. This interactive workshop will offer participants strategies to incorporate collaborative work in their research process through writing groups. The workshop will begin with a first-hand account of collaborative methods used during coursework and the thesis-writing process by the workshop organizers; the transference of these strategies to qualifying/comprehensive exams and dissertations will also be highlighted. A brief survey of contemporary scholarship on the benefits and methods of collaboration in the academy will be provided through a handout to attendees. The session will conclude with an interactive question and answer session with focused discussion questions on how participants currently use and would like to use collaboration and writing groups in graduate school.
