Literature Reviews: Writing

Literature reviews accomplish several purposes for scholars. In the introduction to a research article or thesis chapter, for example, writers review relevant research in order to establish a research gap or articulate a problem or need that the current study addresses. But how do writers summarize the scholarly conversation already underway and, then, join that conversation?

This workshop introduces researchers to the typical structure of the literature review in research article introductions and theses, while accounting for variation in communicative purposes, audiences, and disciplinary differences. Participants will write or revise a draft section of a literature review during dedicated writing time and receive feedback from facilitators and peers. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.

A dedicated Q&A concludes the workshop; however, facilitators welcome questions and comments from participants throughout the interactive talk, whenever something sparks your interest.
