What is it like to present and defend an academic paper? What are the roles of the facilitator? how does writing a book review or assessing academic essays look like? How do professional scholars pursue their research presentation? How do I write and present my doctoral thesis proposal? This seminar will attend to such inquiries, and will continue to provide students with opportunities for collegial interaction by inviting them to witness professional scholars attending to paper-reading, book reviewing, essay’s assessing and proposal writing tasks before them in the seminar’s sessions. The students will also be asked to lead one of the sessions and also to rehearse presenting and defending their doctoral thesis proposal in another.
This course is limited to students in the Ph.D. program.
