Literature Reviews Workshop

Wednesday, October 22, 2014
4:30pm – 5:00pm

Storrs Campus
EC-1, Homer Babbidge Library

This workshop focuses on the literature review as both a genre of writing and a stage in the writing process that allows writers to work through previous researchers’ ideas. Literature reviews are often requested as parts of dissertations, grant proposals, or research articles across many fields, including the sciences, the humanities, and the social sciences. This workshop will consider the basic conventions of the narrative lit review; the systematic lit review; and the meta-analysis. We will address strategies for identifying a topic; organizing your review; and analyzing and synthesizing literature. Come prepared to participate in discussion and interactive exercises. Undergraduates, graduate students, and non-native English speakers are all welcome.
