ENC 5319 – Scholarly Writing for Publication – Writing for Intersectional and Social Justice Research – Fall 2015
This workshop-style seminar is a valuable course for graduate students (and their advisor) as it will give a venue to make progress on and enhance thesis/dissertation writing or other research projects, allowing advisors to focus more on conceptual/methodological issues than on the writing. And, it brings a lens that many students are hungry for: intersectionality and social justice perspectives. See flyer for more details.
