Writing Literature Reviews

Rackham/Sweetland Workshops on Writing
Thursday, November 30, 2023
3:00-4:30 PM
East Conference Room, 4th floor Rackham Graduate School (Horace H.) Map
How do I turn this never-ending tangle of literature into a neat, polished review? In this interactive workshop, we'll cover laying the foundation for your scholarly literature review and then taking that first critical step towards composition. We'll crowdsource tips for generating a source list, organizing it as you go, and starting to extract themes and ideas for section headings from your reading library. We'll also cover the basics of structure to reduce the barrier for writing your first sections. Whether you're halfway through or just starting out, you'll have a chance to take the next step on organizing, defining your purpose, or revising your argumentation. This presentation will focus on reviews in the sciences, but concepts are generalizable to all literature reviews.

Presented by Jimmy Brancho, Sweetland Center for Writing
