BRS WORKSHOP | Academic Writing – Part 2 Effective Strategies for Publishing in English

UPDATE 12.04.2022: The workshop will be taking place in-presence. Please see dates and times below.

This workshop forms the second part of the course "Academic Writing." As in the first part, should the ongoing restrictions continue, the workshop will be offered as an online seminar via BigBlueButton. As such, it  would replace the face-to-face course, but would, nonetheless, cover the same content and use the same approach as the in-class workshop (see below).

This second part continues and concludes the work of the first part, but can also be taken independently if you did not attend the first part. The focus of this part is on issues of language and style that become relevant while drafting and revising any piece of academic writing. We will look at how sentences should be constructed and connected to each other – both to give your texts an academic and professional form and to make them appealing and effective for your readers.

Topics of Part 2:

  • integrating literature and data critically into one's writing;
  • applying the stylistic conventions of academic writing;
  • expressing yourself both confidently and carefully;
  • writing clear and unambiguous sentences in English;
  • avoiding wordiness in order to produce concise sentences;
  • packaging information through effective syntactical and rhetorical choices;
  • employing nouns to express meaning precisely;
  • avoiding typical (non-native-speaker) grammatical mistakes and pitfalls;
  • connecting sentences and linking ideas to make a text flow well.

This second part of the workshop is more practice-oriented as it focuses on how to polish one's texts. In particular, you will get the opportunity to receive (peer and expert) feedback on one of your pieces of academic writing. For this reason, it is advisable (though not mandatory) to have attended the first part of the workshop (or a similar course) or to have some experience with academic writing already. You will receive further information on how to submit a writing sample of yours (preferably, an introduction to a paper, proposal, or dissertation and/or an abstract) in due time before the beginning of the course.
