650:605 - Writing for Learned Journals

In “Writing for Learned Journals,” graduate students learn and practice strategies for turning a paper or thesis into a publishable work.  The seminar is designed a workshop in which students can develop and complete projects they already have underway.  Under the guidance of a professor with extensive scholarly publication, editing, and reviewing experience, students will engage in productive discussions and writing workshops geared to manuscript submission.  The course will involve regular writing, research-based revision strategies, and paper workshopping, as well as readings on publication, the lived experience of inquiry, and knowledge cultures in the contemporary academy.  Students are expected to be actively involved in the class and each other’s projects.
