Description

This will be a hands-on writing workshop intended to facilitate and accelerate the transition from qualifying exams to prospectus conference, and from prospectus conference to the first dissertation chapter. Every week, students will submit some formulation of their project (however partial and provisional) to the group, which will offer constructive feedback and pose leading questions. We will also review a range of prospectuses from the past to demystify the genre and gain a better understanding of its form and function. We will embrace the inevitability of inchoate beginnings and support the process of refining these into well-defined critical questions and projects. The goal will be to insure that by the end of the semester, every member of the workshop will have submitted a prospectus or first chapter to his or her committee.
