Dissertation Writers' Workshop


Weekly seminar for Cultural Anthropology students who have returned from fieldwork and are in the process of writing up their dissertations. Each seminar will focus on a particular aspect of anthropological writing: the introduction and conclusion to a thesis, for example, or when/where/how to lay out methodology, literature review, and positionality. As integrating ethnography and theory is particular to our discipline, emphasis will be placed on examining different strategies, techniques, styles, and tropes for doing this.
