Most graduate students must write reviews of the literature, but this genre of writing can be mysterious for students approaching it for the first time. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn about the main purposes and features of lit reviews, and they will explore methods for analyzing how lit reviews function in their own disciplines and genres of writing. The workshop will then provide participants with tools for generating material and organizing a review of the literature that is driven by the writer.
Presenter, Sarah Johnson, Graduate Writing Coordinator, University Writing Center, George Mason University
