Intended audience: Scholars who want to publish their work
in academic books or journals.

Workshop objective: To increase participants’understanding of what scholarly writing is all about, how they
can get more out of the writing process, and how they can most effectively reach their audience.

Course description: With a point of departure in a current writing project, the workshop will take students
systematically through the most problematic areas of scholarly writing. The focus is on the document level – that is,
audience, core argument and structure – rather than the sentence level. The workshop also covers giving and receiving feedback as well as how to develop good writing habits. On the third day, participants learn how to use oral presentation as a way to strengthen their writing, focus their core arguments, and get useful feedback.

Requirements: Participants must bring a copy of a paper (or book chapter) they would like to work on. At the end of the first day, each participant will receive one paper from another participant to take home and review; participants are thus required to set aside the necessary time for such a review before the second course day. Participants must also prepare a 3-minute presentation on their paper for the final day.

Course will be held in Norwegian and English, Course instructor Lynn P Nygaard.
