Dissertation Track Series

PREP Theme: Resilience

Dissertation-writing can be an intensely stressful time, and graduate students may find themselves losing track of time and losing confidence. This group helps students who are working on their dissertations learn how to cope with the general problems that may arise during their research and writing. It begins with a workshop on how to write and think about a dissertation. Students then meet regularly to discuss the dissertation-writing process, work through the obstacles that dissertation-writing may present, and offer one another support, encouragement and feedback.

Publication Track, Series 2

PREP Theme: Preparation, Professionalization

As a sequel to Series 1, this semester-long program supports students who are interested in publishing articles or book reviews in peer-reviewed journals. Having explored journals in their field during Series 1 the previous semester, students will spend this semester researching and writing an article for publication. Their objective is to produce a draft of their article to be reviewed by group members. Once students have received feedback and revised their articles, they will send the article out for publication.
