This is a practical writing workshop intended to facilitate and accelerate the transitions from qualifying exams to prospectus conference, from prospectus conference to first dissertation chapter, and from the status of student to that of scholar. It provides a collaborative critical community in which participants can try out successive versions of their dissertation projects and learn how others are constructing theirs. It will begin with a review of a range of prospectuses from the past to help demystify the genre and enhance understanding of its form and function. And if all goes according to plan, it will end with every member of the workshop having submitted a prospectus to his or her committee.
