Description

This workshop is intended for graduate students who are currently working on proposals for major research projects, especially for large multi-year projects such as the doctoral dissertation or long-term grants or fellowships. We will deal with the range of structural issues peculiar to writing about what you haven't yet written: such as how to know when you've done enough background research to structure a feasible project; how to position yourself in the critical landscape; how to time and plan for research travel; and how to calculate a reasonable timeline for your work. More importantly, the workshop will support students through the process of planning, drafting, polishing, and submitting a full dissertation prospectus or grant/fellowship application, and then of embarking on the research they have proposed. (Pre-QE students currently working on their field statement or a grant will also be welcome to join.)
