From your local Academic Support and Tutoring Resource Center:
Wherever you are along the path in your school of study, getting a doctorate probably brings to mind a host of things at this point: an impossible amount of reading, interminable assignments, interviews, internships, sleep deprivation …the list goes on. But for many, the most inescapable and intimidating part is the dissertation. And we all know you can't start your dissertation without a comprehensive literature review.
The lit review is often a nebulous, confusing thing for many students. It is for this reason that some of your SF Academic Support Writing Tutors have banned forces to come up with a way to help demystify the process. On Tuesday, March 13th, they will be hosting Techniques and Organization for the Literature Review: Making the Lit Review Manageable. Come join in the fun from 12 to 1:30pm in Room 217/218 as they walk you through the process, from the initial stages of procuring studies to the final stages of revising and rewriting.
Whether you are in the midst of working on your own lit review or those two words alone insight terror and confusion within you, this workshop is sure to be full of valuable information. Grab your friends, bring your questions, and we will see you there! Bring your lunch. Light refreshments will be served.
