Write like a scholar (Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences), ANU, Wednesday, 16. October 2019

What does it mean to ‘write like a scholar’ and not as ‘a student’? In this workshop, we discuss how a vital part of developing your credibility as a scholar in your field or discipline is being able to demonstrate a strong commitment to your ideas. Learn how you can become a strong advocate of your own work and lead readers towards your intended meanings using a range of linguistic strategies. Understand how disciplinary-specific conventions can affect how you engage with others’ work, structure writing and integrate evidence. Challenge or affirm your own views about what constitutes ‘stylish academic writing’.
Please bring along a copy of a piece of writing in your area (can be a journal article, thesis chapter etc.) that you love or find effective as an example of good scholarly writing. Why does the writing work for you? Why do you find it particularly compelling and/or persuasive?  How does the author talk about other peoples’ research/ideas, and how do they position their own research/findings in relation to others’ work?
