Literature Reviews: Mapping the Scholarly Conversation
Literature reviews accomplish several purposes for scholars. In the introduction to a research article, research paper, or thesis chapter, for example, writers review relevant research in order to establish a research gap, 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 literature reviews, while accounting for variation in communicative purposes, audiences, and disciplinarity. Participants will write or revise a section of a literature review during dedicated writing time.
