Graduate Workshop Series: Ph.D. is for Purposeful Honing and Delivery
We are pleased to offer series of non-credit informal workshops focusing developing student research projects through professionalization opportunities. We will cover the following topics: narrowing your project focus and scope, responding to CFPs, writing fellowship and grant applications, fine-tuning short descriptions of your project, and nailing the “so what” question. Workshops are free to attend and open to any doctoral students in American Studies, though others are encouraged to inquire. Participants are welcome to attend any or all of the series. Reservation requested but not required. Please find more information here.
